The ROM Arrives!

Christmas came early at the Morrell houshold when my shiny new ROM arrived! Here are some of the first videos I’ve ever shot, chronicling this triumphal entry.

Some of the filming reminds me of The Blair Witch Project, my apologies. : )

The ROM-delivery gentlemen get the ROM into my garage, and let me know that I’m not the only one in Raleigh who has one.

[BTW for my techie friends: I’m filming this on a FlipCam HD. It looks super-crisp on my computer, but when I upload it seems rather choppy. Any advice for my next uploads?]

Coming at the top of next week: My first-ever ROM workout, guest-filmed by an international director! I kid you not.

This blog is the best place to follow my ROM fitness challenge & whole-life cross-training in anticipation of the Big 3-0. But if you want to cut out my blabbing, or just share the videos with all your friends, here’s my YouTube channel. See you soon!

    Dude–I am laughing my @$$ off watching the Blair Mike Project. This is classic. I could not stop howling in laughter…”we’re going to play this incognito…” HIlarious man. I can’t wait to watch more.

    That is pretty cool man. I can’t wait to see how it works for you. I was amazed that more than one was in the area. It was funny how he said they were in multi-million dollar homes. He was wondering why you were living so under your means until you told him! Ha ha!

    I facebooked you, but I guessed on your wordpress logon and added you to our blog as well. Let me know if you have any issues with getting on now.

    When you move to Atlanta you can just have them move that thing to my house.

    I’m extremely jealous. You got a ROM machine for the cost of shipping. However, I have to congratulate you on your ability to come up with a way to get one without paying full price.
