Run (video shoot) 45:00  6.0 mi (7:30 / mi)
I was driving w my daughter the other day, and told her that I was going to be a model. She actually turned her head so I wouldn't see (that was the nice part) and started laughing (that was the honest part).
When I explained that I was just a "runner model" and that I would be wearing Scotchlite, and that it would be filmed at night and my face and body wouldn't be visible, she gave an understanding nod.
Actually, it was even worse than that. I didn't even get to wear the highly reflective Scotchlite (same stuff that's worn by highway workers on their vests, but now used by New Balance, Harley and the intent is, based on this video shoot... many others). Yes, the sad truth: for many of the shots, I was a BEFORE model.... hahaha. So, really there to demonstrate that I was invisible when a car was coming at me... until about 50-100 feet. (I'm sure everyone has had that experience of suddenly seeing a pedestrian or runner at night along the road...... I was one of the idiots who was running in the middle of the road).
The video shoot was at 3M's traffic control test site.... a fake highway with lots of traffic signs, road paint, traffic lights--all 3M products, and couple of two lane roads. With the camera crew at one end, we were asked to run in various groups (1000 feet towards camera, 1000 feet away from camera).
I first wore fluorescent 3M product at twilight- highly visible --along with people wearing white, black, or various reflective . (YES, I was a AFTER model here, and since it was twilight, perhaps I might even be distinguishable). We did this a lot of times. Then we took a break and waited for dark, and did it some more.
I have read that white is not that visible at night, and truly... it was hard to see the white runners until they were very close to the headlight (camera). The fluorescent was just fine at twilight, but also pretty pathetic at night. The competitive reflective materials really were not that visible, but the 3M stuff was a light-house beacon. I think the clothing needs some better designers... the runners looked a little like agile firemen.
I probably ran back and forth about 15 times or so, really not sure. Various speeds, depending mostly on the slowest person in the group....we ran with 4-10 people at a time, in a tight somewhat unnatural configuration. As a workout, I'd characterize this as running slow intervals with long breaks in between...just enough time to get almost stiff and then have to run again.
