Conqur Endurance Group Ambassadorship

I don't know if you remember or not, but last year I was selected as one of the lucky few to be an ambassador for the Los Angeles Marathon. This year, I reapplied to the Conqur Endurance Group Ambassador program (the master brand behind the Los Angeles Marathon, Pasadena Half MarathonSanta Monica Classic, etc).

Me at the finish line of the Los Angeles Marathon earlier this year

Last week I received a "congrats" email because I was picked to move on to the second round.

Don't get me wrong, I was honored to be selected to move on to the next step of the process... Well, that was until I saw we had to record another video...

If you've been around for a while you might remember my application video for last year's ambassadorship (if not or you just want a good laugh, feel free to check it out here). Well, I was hoping we would be exempt from this little charade this year, but apparently no such luck.

Being selected to move on in the application process meant I would need to record another "audition" video - but thankfully this year we didn't have to sing/ lip sync a song. In the video we were asked to answer two questions and do an IMPRESSION! Oh crap, I don't do any impressions... Maybe singing "row row row your boat" was easier last year...

Watch the video below for my thoughts on both a runner's high and advice for someone tackling their first full marathon! And if you stick around long enough you will get a Walt the Wiener Dog cameo and see what I did for my impression.

We won't find out who was selected as a Conqur Endurance Group Ambassador until late next week, so for now it is a bit of the "hurry up and wait" feeling... Wish me luck (both in my patience and in securing one of the coveted spots)! 

What would you have done for your impression?
