BCRR was well represented in the media before, during, and after the marathon.
The Houston Chronicle:
- Ray Boytim was highlighted in the Chronicle and was mentioned a bazillion times during the marathon live coverage on Channel 13. This was both his 30th consecutive Houston Marathon and his 200th marathon (at age 75)!! Quite an accomplishment!!
- Mike Mangan was interviewed for a full hour about the marathon and his quest for Boston on “The Danny Arnold Show” on KBME-790 AM “The Sports Animal” on Saturday January 5th. He will be featured again this Saturday the 19th (11AM) when he calls in his post-marathon report.
- Mark Fraser (together with Roger Boak) educated the masses about the Houston Marathon and marathon running in general during an hour long broadcast on KPFT on Friday the 11th. Thanks for the plugs for BCRR Mark!!!
Let’s Go to the Videotape: I recorded the live marathon coverage on Channel 13 to review later Sunday evening while I lay with ice packs on my legs and a glass of wine in hand.
The following people enjoyed a few milliseconds of their 15 minutes of fame:
-Allison Nadolski- seen in the opening Montage grimacing with pain/exhaustion (probably recorded last year)
-Joe Sellers- twice!! Seen from the back at the start of the race and later on White Oak Bayou
-Jake Tonge at White Oak Bayou
-Yours Truly(Kathi Mahon) at White Oak Bayou
-Dani Carbone-Sohn interview about why she is running- good job Dani, but you missed an opportunity to plug BCRR!!
-Eric Faria waving to the camera on Post Oak
-Bob Thompson interview.
-Linnie Reichle at finish
On the Recap show Sunday PM:
-Bruce Levy at the Beer stop. Looking Good!!
-Deborah Touchy at Finish running Yours Truly in.
-Kim Rose interview (as a spectator)
(Disclaimer: I was tired, horizontal, and drinking wine. I may have dozed off and missed someone. I apologize if I did. Please comment if I left someone out on this list or the one above.)
