The Ali Shuffle 10k 2013

About a week ago, I participated in a 10k run.. and I happened to bring a (partially charged) camera.  Turns out they’re a small organization, so after chatting to a volunteer, I took video of the race, and put this together to help promote them:  (less than 3 minutes):

The Race

Geeky: It was challenging to put this together – I had to renew my subscription to Adobe Premiere CS6 to get access to the Warp Stabilizer effect to calm the running parts of the video down.  (It worked very well).

Some other stuff I learned:

  • The Muhammad Ali Center is downtown.  That’s where Marcell works.
  • The Muhammad Ali Institute is at U of L, and is not the same thing.  That’s where Stacy works.
  • The Institute goes in two year cycles with its scholars:
    • Researching global problems?
    • Making a trip to study solutions abroad?
    • Bringing those solutions back home in a project?
  • This was the second year of the run.

There’s a (much) longer video with all the footage I got, unedited, unstabilized, where you can learn more from the people who talked to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtQm5Tu7WGM

The bicycle lady.. I had dropped my GoPro, she rescued it and brought it up to me.    Thank you!

I’m thinking, this year as I do races, I’ll do little glimpses into the races .. to promote them.  Because I think they are beautiful and cool and worthy enterprises.   Especially the smaller ones.

Be good.
