I can't believe I ran 14 miles today. I'm so proud of myself!
This past week was Hell on Earth. (HOE for short). Our production schedule was so tight that we didn't have time for any wiggle room. And I learned I'm a really good producer, but most of the time that makes you very unpopular. People don't like it when you tell them, "that's it. You're done." "I'm sorry you're not finished, but we're into over-time" (Which, really, the crew is on a flat - welcome to the wonderful world of documentary film making - but we don't want to work them OVER time.)
So I spent the week being daddy and slave driver.
It was what will be our most difficult week. We are currently not scheduled for more shooting, but that's a whole other story. I head back to LA on Tuesday morning. I'm editing a piece Monday with our brilliant AC who happens to be a whiz with Final Cut.
And then I fly out the first plane out so I can be at Fox to hopefully sell LIBERTY PRESERVED to Fox at 4 PM!
Tomorrow is our 7 Mile training run at the site in LA. But since I missed the 12 mile, I decided to suck it up and just do 14. From my hotel, out and over the Golden Gate Bridge, and back is 14 miles.
I forgot about all the freaking hills in SF. I'm not sure HOW I forgot about the hills, but I did. I'm sore, but walking. My face is windburned. But my hair looks great!
I was more impressed that I was able to pace myself the entire 14 miles. Other than a few bikes and small children wandering into my path, it was fairly non-violent as well.
And the weather was PERFECT. I love that I can run for 14 miles at 1PM and not worry about the heat. I love San Francisco's weather. Though it did make for interesting looks from people - me dressed in a tank and shorts and them bundled up as if they were in the dead of winter in Alaska.
I came back to the hotel and had two chicken breasts and vegetables while passing out in my food and watching some special on THE HILLS. I woke up, got dressed and took the MUNI into the Castro where I had a bacon cheeseburger and salad. And then a peanut butter (which I always rationalize in my head that it's protein...) and chocolate chip cookie.
I'm now in my room and trying to do revisions on LITTLE DEATH. I'm so behind it's not even funny.
