A Weekend of Awesome with Extreme Kellie – Day 1
Last summer Lesley Betts introduced me to the 30 Days of Awesome Challenge. The challenge was simple. Do something awesome for 30 days and blog about it. If only I had met Kellie MacMullan before the summer.
For those who live outside of Colorado, Kellie MacMullan is a name you probably have not heard outside of the Vitalyte website, but it’s a name I’m confident you’ll be hearing in the future across the globe. Kellie is a news anchor on the CW’s Denver station and was introduced to Vitalyte through he segment “Extreme Kellie.” Check out all of the previous segments at www.vitalyte.com or www.2thedeuce.comunder the video section. You’ll notice that they are filmed in Colorado so as part of the partnership between Vitalyte and Extreme Kellie, we invited her out to the corporate office in San Diego to take advantage of some of the Extreme possibilities that Southern California has to offer.
Kellie and her camera guy Noah get into San Diego at around 7. Was it mean for me to book them on a flight that left Denver at 6:00 am? I don’t think so. It gave me an opportunity to take them out to the beach for a cup of coffee.
After the coastal tour of San Diego it was off to our first shoot of the day at SeaWorld for the Dolphin Experience. This was an amazing thing to watch as Kellie got in the dolphin tank to test her dolphin training skills.
The dolphin experience, which is open to anyone, allows you to get up close and personal with these amazing animals. From initial introductions like the one above, to getting the dolphins to perform their amazing aerial feets, the dolphin tank is fantastic experience.
For those who live outside of Colorado, Vitalyte will have the video of these “Extreme Kellie” segments available on our website.
Check back over the next couple weeks to learn about the rest of the trip. The Extreme level goes into maximum overdrive as we get to run the Baja in the most amazing machines I have ever seen, fly World War II fighter planes and surf some monster waves(Ok, they wern’t that big but you have to start somewhere right). In addition I’ll explain why you should never eat McDonalds in a border town, take a rental car to Mexico or drive a Baja car with a hangover.
