The alarm went off at 5:20am. Ugh. I didn’t sleep well last night, even though I was in bed by 11:20pm. I woke up at 2:59am with what I can only figure was heartburn. I don’t have heartburn often so I am guessing. Had a hard time going back to sleep, but I did. Then it was the alarm.
I don’t usually get up this early but this morning, well I did. Showered, shaved and dressed. I had to be downtown at 6am. I was there at 6:04am. Luckily, the person I was meeting, Chad Nance, was later than me by about 3 minutes. What in the honey-baked Hades were we doing up so early? Well, Dear Reader, I’ll tell you…
Chad and I were working on a project. A project that I’ve been talking about for a while, now. All my talk about getting sponsorships from Omega Sports, Mary’s Gourmet Diner, Atelier on Trade and Hoots Roller Bar & Beer Company, is finally going to pay off for them (and me). Chad and I were filming the intro to the web video series The Man Who Walked the Town. So, once Chad has it edited down to fit the intro VO/music that I made, that will be the final piece; the last element needed.
It was short and chopped up walks but I was sweating and had over 7000 steps before 8am. That’s not bad, huh? That was 7x the steps I took all day yesterday. Well, almost. I had about 1500 or so when it was all said and done. Okay, so it was 4x and some change, but still… I should have 10,000 before the day is up and I plan doing it all again tomorrow, if The BCPF is up to it. She’s a little under the weather today. But, it’s supposed to be a sweltering day tomorrow so we’re going to get up early. We’ll probably do the walk before we go to Mary’s and Atelier. Let that be our early reward and then head to Hoot’s afterwards for the “hop pops,” right?
Anywhat! I’m excited about the video series almost ready to go. I’ll be asking for recommendations and requests and I’ll be recruiting people to walk with me/us (plus The BCPF) to add to the enjoyment of walking and exploring all this town has to offer. I’ll keep you posted as we get nearer! Get to steppin’! (as The Man Who Walked the Town would say).
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
