I finally decided to GoPro.

I’ve wanted one for a long time, but I finally bought one today. I ended up buying a GoPro Hero 3 (White Edition), chest harness, extra battery, and a 32gb memory card. The camera features 1080p video and 30 frames per second. With a 32mb memory card, I should get approximately 4 1/2 hours of video.

I really wanted it for next month when I run my ultramarathon at the La Jolla Canyon 50k.  Instead of taking constant pictures of the beautiful landscape I can now record almost the entire race. This will also come in handy at Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, 5k Foam Fest, and all of my other fun adventures I have scheduled. I’m getting it set up now and hope to make it out to a trail today so I can test it. I’ll post a video today or tomorrow and give it a review.

    You guys (Americans) have the best races – last week I read about the colo(u)r run, now the Foam Fest – each time I get really excited that they’re in the UK and they’re not….. apart from Tough Mudder!!
