2009 Keys 100 Mile Video Retrospect

If you enjoyed reading the story of Brittni Radford's Keys 100 experience in Monday's post (see 2009 Keys 100 Mile - The Journey of Brittni Radford), you will enjoy today's post even more.  Today we feature a video I made of the AIDS Orphans Rising team's journey at the Keys 100 Mile UltraMarathon.  Video music credits go to Green Day for "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" from the albums Nimrod and International Superhits, and to Miley Cyrus & Hannah Montana for "The Climb" from the album Hannah Montana: The Movie (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).

Team AIDS Orphans Rising: Sister Mary Beth Lloyd (#8), Lisa Smith-Batchen (#7), Brittni Radford (#58), Heather Wilcox (#72), and Jean Oakley (#55)

The Crew:  Me, Jonathan Portera, Buddy Lloyd, Todd and Helene Milbert, Stephanie Walters, Ashley Oakley and Ashley Wilcox.

Many thanks to Keys 100 race director Bob Becker and his entire staff of volunteers.
