Ultimate Direction video shoot

 The Ultimate Direction video shoot lasted 8 hours. And it was a blast! TONS of video shot with gazillion dollar (to me) equipment in an awesome location by awesome photographers. The interview lasted over an hour and Eric Larsen asked some killer questions that really challenged me. From fear and my childhood to 'my legacy' and my ego. He had some great ones but coming from someone with his polar expedition bad-assedness I should expect that. Total blast. I have no idea when the video will be done but I will get all the raw footage for myself, which will include my off camera remarks which can't be shown on a family blog.

oh man I won't ever be able to settle for the edited version after that last sentence.

Is it odd to get comments like this from people you do not know and most likely never will know?

Damie- I will!

Anon- It is weird coming from an anonymous person. There should be some good raw footage that will make for some good blog posts.

The only way the Anon post could be better is if it ended with:

Ha! Definitely. Or "sent from Tim Waggoner's home computer".

Eric- I have a friend, Matt Seeley, who used to train at time exclusively with stretch cords for his swim. I firmly believe that at a certain point an Ironman athlete COULD do one swim per week and then do dry land work for the rest of it. If your technique was very good you could get away with it. If I went back to Ironman that's exactly what I would do. I used to hate swimming with a passion so I learned to do only what I needed, and I swam 52:00 off of just ~14k a week.
