After the film block, film makers got to introduce themselves and take questions… the best part was when another filmmaker used part of her introduction time to gush over our film and complimenting it as a first time documentary film!

The PJ class short documentary “Carolina ‘Cross” was finally seen on the big screen at Praxis Film Festival.

Becca and Khadejeh were invited as part of a panel on film making for new filmmakers – we were the only documentary – at least that wasn’t just a slide show of old photos – and had some great questions and compliments!

Today was a GREAT day!

I accomplished everything I wanted to do on my list: gym in the morning, oil change on the Taco, tune mountain bike, lunch with JD, pack for camping, pick up wheel and ride. Then the day got better, my students documentary on North Carolina Cyclocross was selected for the Longleaf 2018 Film Festival!

I found out right before I started my ride and was so happy/thrilled/excited for the class that my ride was magical, the bike flowed, I was fast and smooth and enjoyed every moment of the ride! Like I said, a good day!


JD and I talked about Utah at lunch….
