    4:29:20

    GRANT:
    No way.  That’s fast.  Maybe I should have picked someone slower, like Katie Holmes (5:29:58) or David Lee Roth (6:04:43). 

    VICKY:
    Still think you can do it?

    GRANT:
    Hell yes I can.  I’m putting her picture up on my bathroom mirror.  I’m going to stare at it every day.  This is going to be like Rocky vs. Mr. T.

    VICKY:
    May 30, 2010.   Ottawa Race Weekend.  You have one year to beat Oprah.

    GRANT:
    Beat Oprah!

    VICKY:
    What happens if you lose?

    GRANT:
    I dunno.  Maybe I have to read her lousy book recommendations for a year.  That should be incentive enough.

    VICKY:
    Deal. 

    GRANT:
    I’m coming for you Oprah!

    Self-described “running nerds,” Vicky and Grant are co-workers who “spend their lunch hours at the nearest bookstore and will often be seen around the office getting excited about a new energy bar or running gadget.” The duo captured our attention with their unique (double) take on Running Blog Idol, pledging to address a host of different topics including Canadian running heroes. Their submission to our contest even included a sample vlog (available at youtube.com/watch?v=oy4oDokN1Qo), which they promise is “but only a mere example of the lengths we are willing to go in order to share our experience, knowledge, research and general ramblings.” Holy multimedia, Batman!
