10/1/2011 Minneapolis, MN Lake Harriet Fall Colors

Today was a first.  I did my first 5K run/jog this morning at the Timber Dash.  I figured what the heck since it was a Walk/Run/Jog event for a good cause.

The Timber Dash event raises money with all proceeds directly benefiting PATH Crisis Nursery serving Wright County.  It is more like a fast paced nature trail hike through Lake Maria State Park near Monticello, MN.  Lets just say I am out of shape still but this kicked my butt today and will be continuing to go to the gym to see how fast I can do it next year.

After the Timber Dash, I needed to head into Minneapolis to get some urgent video request off to a client at the FedEx office at the airport so they could have it first thing Monday morning.  I also had to do a fall colors video for someone that wanted to see what they were looking like around the metro. 

So with this being the first of October, it was a picture perfect day in Minneapolis, MN as the fall colors were coming out with temps in the 60 around Lake Harriet. 

Above is the HD News B-Roll footage I shot of people out enjoying the fall day while walking, running, or biking around Lake Harriet. Also footage of people enjoying what may be the last weekends for the Lake Harriet Rose Garden.

Time to call it a night and go and relax after beating myself up climbing the big hills in the state park trails this morning. Tomorrow morning I think is going to suck as I know my legs will be hurting.
