my promo video for the detroit women's half marathon

a few months back, i hinted at something awesome i worked on for the detroit women's half marathon. i'm delighted to share a special gift i received for christmas; the finished product!

the video below is footage from the inaugural detroit women's half marathon and 5k. the voice over is 100% ME!! for the record, i did not read any script or rehearse anything prior to recording. the words you hear in this video are all of my true thoughts and reflections about three weeks prior to the race. hearing my words with the race footage gives me chills. i felt inspired after watching and listening to this - in a way, i am re-inspiring myself and everything i love about running! what a beautiful gift to receive :)

    1. Detroit really is beautiful. I think you can find beauty in the tragic parts of it, too!

  2. Congratulations Alicia! That's awesome!! I cannot watch it right this minute b/c my family is watching something on tv in the room, but I will a bit later. I have heard some great things about the race, I wish I could do it but I'm thinking my work schedule won't allow it. It's on a weekend in October, right?

    1. If only it wasn't so snowy, I think the motivation would sky rocket even more! LOL This race was great - I think I will try the 5k this year, unless I get wild and stick with half marathons in 2014 :)

  5. That was awesome! Congrats! You have a great speaking voice and your words captured the emotions and victory in racing. Also, I didn't realize Detroit was so beautiful, having never visited the city (I've visited some of the burbs on a work trip once). This was a great promo!

    1. Thank you! Yes, Detroit is really beautiful. Its a shame that all the publicity around it is negativity and doesn't highlight the wonderful things it has to offer!!

      I was really hoping I could convey my emotions - sometimes its so hard with words - I'm glad that they came through! :D
