I always wonder how people feel when the local news comes on with one of those, "America is getting fat," pieces, and they recognize their own fat asses.

There was an incident here last year where some dumbass fell off the 6th level of a parking deck in his Cavilier while "drifting". We also have these monthly unofficial meetings at a place in downtown atlanta and the news came out to do a story on the meet. Well, next thing I know, I'm being interviewed...

It was way cooler as a video being played on TV..... which several of my friends saw me lol

Been on local news a few times, once when I was in ground school the Jacksonville news popped in and showed my face, another time more recently I was part of a military funeral honors team and they showed me "spinning", which is basically making a show of inspecting and presenting the colors to the next of kin. They also got me a bunch of times when I was lead guard on the Ft. Gordon colorguard.

Had a small feature in Runners world when I was running a marathon in every state with my GF.

My GF has been in almost every running magazine, local papers and USA today at one time or another.
I think I posted this before, but she has run at least one marathon every month for 23 years. Her count is currently over 400 marathons, I'm just over 200 marathons.

I had a pretty long interview on the radio at Farm aid in 07' They were asking people about the farms they worked at, what was the best part, etc. Needless to say.....its was a awesome interview. I was probably the most down to earth person at that hick event.
