It is a temporary vlog beginning Monday, October 19 through Sunday, November 15. MISD Education Foundation Executive Director Randy Lewallyn will video blog his daily run/walk of at least 1-mile as a training tool for the Virtually Amazing Santacolor 5K on November 14 & 15.
During the project, Randy will run/walk alongside other MISD stakeholders in some episodes doing vlog informal interviews with each guest, in hopes of giving viewers a glimpse of what it’s like to walk in the guests shoes. To see things from their perspective professionally and to get to know them a little personally. This will be unscripted, casual light-hearted conversation.
