    Default Great South Run

    I ran this race with Tarquin, Sarah and Bryony, and I was surprised that Tarquin was running with a Flip Video camera ... it works though, right?

    I ran a London Marathon with an old Sony miniDV camcorder. Carried the blasted thing for 26 miles, but only got about 30 seconds of decent footage (so that about a second a mile!)... and didn't have the energy or the thought to turn it on as I crossed the finish line. If I'd have had a smaller flip type camera, it would have been so much better - lighter, easier to hold whilst running and longer recording time!

    The lesson here is to always plan if you've got a camera! I know it sounds silly, but the amount of times I've missed something (when I did actually have a camera on me) is alarming. OK, maybe fogetting to record crossing the finish line is a excusable after running for a fair few hours, but it should have been something I'd planned!
