Say you were pumped up and all ready to go for your first 5k. You did the training, paid your registration, and were lined up at the start line. Above you, a drone recording the race whizzes by ready for the gun to go off. The race starts, and off you and all the other runners go. The drone in hot pursuit, on its way to making a great race-recap video for everyone to see.

Seems like a great idea… until I watching some actual videos on youtube. See exhibit A)

That video kind of reminds me of a mass-exodus film out of Siberia during some winter war.  Maybe it was the music choice, but yeesh.

I am interested to see if people use these more and more. I suppose I’ll have to remember to scan the skies during the Buffalo Half!
