Proof of Life film update: Saltese Uplands

April 22, 2017



Yesterday was a gorgeous day of shooting for the Proof of Life film. We chose the Saltese Uplands Conservation Area near Liberty Lake: partly for the open spaces, partly because I’d been wanting to visit. It’s amazing how you can drive a few miles down the freeway, through a suburban neighborhood, around a bend, and be in an area like this.


Director Adam Harum and I spent an absolutely joyous couple of hours running around, talking about childhood hikes, reveling in the green hills and the flooded fields below us and snow-capped peaks behind us, and experimenting with how to capture the emotions of running on film. It’s fascinating to be part of the creative  process of documentary film-making.


In terms of progress toward the goal of the Riverside 50k trail run on Sept 9, training is going well. Trainer Dave Dutro had me do my first one-hour run last Wednesday and it was a physical, mental and emotional milestone. Like in the past, once I’ve gone an hour, my body seems to open up and training hits a new stride.


Running around in nature's playground on a day like this, it’s hard to imagine it’s only three days until my 48th (48th!) birthday.


Here’s Adam enjoying a beer at 12 String Brewery as we stopped to debrief on the way home. Aaah, life in the Inland NW!
