    Runnin' With The Devil

    In July of 2007, I moved into an apartment. I was unpacking the night before my favorite road race, and I came across a few pairs of spandex pants. Leftover relics of bygone days. I pull them out at Halloween, or when I want to lounge around and don't feel like sweatpants. Which is quite often, because I hate sweatpants. Anyway, what I couldn't find were shorts to run the road race in. Necessity being the mother of invention, I started thinking. Which is always dangerous.

    Divine Inspiration hit me like a flash bomb at a Van Halen concert. "Run the race in the spandex pants. Why not? It'll be fun. Hot, but fun. Better yet, run the road race as a guy who would run a road race in spandex pants. Besides myself, of course. No brainer. My absolute favorite spandex donning human being of all time, Diamond David Lee Roth. Enter the race as David Lee Roth. Makes perfect sense. Done." And that's how quickly it happened.

    I had so much fun doing it last year, that I did again this past July and shot it. 

    My intent with this video story is to illustrate how much fun it can be when you show up for life as yourself. And when you're being yourself, you're coming from your heart. Especially if it's quite a few steps (or miles, in my case) off the beaten path. If you didn't worry about what people thought, how would you run a road race YOUR WAY?
