Running Fool is the Human Baton

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the December 17th, 2006

Ze Frank has a posse. That posse is known as Sports Racers. One Sports Racer by the name of RunningFool, or Luke as his parents might call him, is in the midst of tossing himself off from Sports Racer to Sports Racer in an attempt to travel across the United States. Completely organized from the forum of Ze Frank’s website, RunningFool is traveling like a human baton with the help of 300 fellow Sports Racers. Irina catches up with RunningFool as he passes through the San Francisco Bay area. Several other Sports Racers show up and demand to be counted.

    Excellent! I love that the handoff with Ecto-1 made the cut 🙂

    Irina, I liked the duck clip in between the Sports Racer. It’s hard to figure out what it is in the beginning but it gives that gradual delivery of what it is. I saw the Flickr stream first and it’s a plus to see the story.

    The bald guy looks pretty funny. Plus he has a funny accent. I bet he has some sort of funny podcast. I’d subscribe to it myself if I wasn’t already him. But I am, oh well…

    Anyway, cheers for including the all important yellow backdrop. I have been following the Fool’s progress via the Forum on Zefrank and it’s a hoot to see the button I put on his jacket pop up in other places. At this rate, he’ll be carrying his own bodyweight in badges by the time he hits NYC….

    Fun story. I really like the human baton handoff photos. Sports Racers are some of the funnest people around!

    Here is a link to the video of the ZeFrank intro we made at the Seattle Running Fool get toether. It features a “scary” bellydancer. She was actually a lovely person. We had a chance to chat after all the excitement:
