Nice job. Did the same thing for 3 :(
When I record one of those and play at normal speed it feels sooooo slow. For me atleast 1.5 speed more realisticaly conveys to a viewer how I feel and how fast it feals I am going :)

It's convenient that your race is only 30 minutes long, so it actually doesn't that long to watch! It's about the length of an episode of Master on None (w/ Aziz Ansari on Netflix, highly recommend!).

Haha but perhaps not as entertaining. When I wear my GoPro I try to run fast and not make mistakes purely out of consideration for the viewer's time and attention span.

@Nikolay, real time is certainly more boring but I think also better for analysis. Particularly you realize how much time you had to avoid and correct your errors that you didn't take advantage of.

I would actually think that the viewer is more entertained when there are most mistakes and when the GoPro carrier falls a lot and curses.

Yeah, I agree with Boris. Your mistake was the most entertaining part. Kate and I talked to the computer screen, "turn right... turn right... oh, no! He turned left!!"

What's silly is that I somehow missed crossing the big paved road/trail thingy (even though I clearly ran along it for a full 15 seconds and the loud CLACK CLACK CLACK of metal spikes on pavement probably should've been a clue...) so when I turned left I had no idea where I was at and could've just as easily turned right, whereby I would have run smack into the control through dumb luck. This based on the highly questionable strategy of "If you don't know where you are, run somewhere else as fast as you can!"
