Earlier today, I promised to post a video from before the ceremonial start of something that you've probably never seen. This is it, but it needs just a little set-up.
My young friend Max -- my best friend's oldest son -- flew up from Atlanta and was a big help to the Team all last week. He was especially valuable to me -- and to you! -- by putting his camera skills to use. For example, the still photos we posted of both starts are his, along with many great candid shots like the one here that I would not otherwise have gotten while shooting video.
He also went on a "midnight mission" last Friday night, to get this footage of how Anchorage goes through a major transformation from bare city streets to the snow covered trail you saw on Saturday morning.
So, thanks to Max, here's a little "insider" view we hope you like:
