I almost didn't write a post today, but I wanted to share this video, so this will be a super quick post.
As I mentioned, the From Fat to Finish Line documentary is going to be released on August 2nd--it's coming up so fast! I'm a nervous wreck, especially when I saw this on Amazon:
"Starring Katie Foster"... what?! This is just so crazy to me. I'm actually more nervous than excited at this point. When I agreed to this whole thing, I never dreamed it would actually get this far. On Amazon? And Netflix? It blows my mind!
Anyway, Angela (the producer) shared another short trailer for the film. I already showed you the original trailer several times, so here is a short, fun one that was shared today:
I love Rik's quote at the end. That's EXACTLY how I feel when I finish a run :)
As the release gets closer, I may be sharing some more photos or videos as Angela allows. If you follow the From Fat to Finish Line page on Facebook, you can see them all there as well.
Today, I checked off another run on my Cookies Summer Running Checklist--the "Podcast Run", where you download a new podcast and listen to it while you run. I downloaded the new podcast from Runner's World, which I'd been meaning to do anyway, and I listened to the episode with Bart Yasso (one of my favorite people in the running community). I think he really needs his own podcast where he can tell stories about his runs! His stories are SO interesting! I listened to his seminar at a RW event, and then I bought his book because I enjoyed the seminar so much.
Anyway, I am getting bored of taking mid-run selfies (and for some reason, they keep coming out super blurry). I'm not sure how else to "document" my run with photos, other than the token Garmin photo. So today, I decided to try out the timer on my phone. I propped it up on a rock, and managed to get a pretty good picture!
I ran 3.5 miles at an easy pace, and it felt REALLY good today. The temp was much lower, which is probably why.
I've been trying to get some good pictures of Olivia/Monica (we call her Monica, but because we are fostering her, we can't really officially change her name). She's constantly on the move, so about 49 out of 50 pictures I take turn out blurry. But here is a decent one:
And I love how she sleeps curled into a tiny ball:
She adores my family, but she still doesn't get along with the other pets. I hope that after some time, they'll come around. They don't fight, but the cats always hiss at each other when they walk past. And Olivia/Monica constantly swipes at Joey's nose when he gets close to her.
But other than the issue with the other pets, she's adjusting really well!
