Here is what I know. GMR Marketing, specializes in large marketing campaigns using live subjects at big public events. Their Super Bowl campaign is for a 'Green' Company, we don't know the sponsor yet, that is having cyclists riding for 2 hour blocks running from 6am Thursdays straight through Sunday night at 8pm. They are paying $20 per hour and max out at four hours per day. I wanted more shifts but could only get 2 hours Thursday and 4 hour Saturday. Normally they are not letting people ride 4 hours straight but, when I told them I am an Ironman (yeah, I name dropped myself) they waived the exemption.
I told em, "Hey I got an 80 mile ride scheduled that day anyway, why not?"
So you want to know how I can sit on a trainer for four hour on Saturday? Pay me $80 for doing it. Plus the two hours on Thursday which I am just tossing on top of my normal training day.
There is no stipulation on cadence or distance, just keeping the pedals moving is all they care about and I can wear my iPod and listen to reruns of GYGO and TacBoy & Bigun. Of course the plan Saturday is to get 4 hard hours of training in, as well as smiling and proudly showing my uniform of a long sleeve green shirt with the yet unknown sponsor name. But I suppose with about 40 other people around me, there will be plenty to keep my occupied.
The event is at the NFL Experience complex, so I get free parking at the stadium and free admission to the complex. No, Super bowl tickets are not included. I didn't want to be anywhere near the stadium on game day. On Sunday I will knock out my 16 mile run then eat some sushi pre-game and have a massive BBQ steak and potato during the game with Pops.
