I have an obsession with Jurassic Park.
It was the first movie I remember being allowed to stay up late to watch on TV. We were in South Carolina for a graduation and it coincided with the television premier of Jurassic Park. I so wanted to see it but I recall my folks thinking I would be too scared. I wasn’t. It was amazing.
I have seen every Jurassic Park movie and loved them each in their own way. Yes, even Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World. There could be 100 Jurassic Park movies and I’d watch them all. I have worn out approximately 5 logo t-shirts and at least one complete set of DVDs. I own all the soundtracks and rescued a vintage VHS from the trash heap. When my sister sent me some money for my birthday last year, I bought an exclusive “dinosaur skin” hardback novel. Jurassic Park is my Star Wars.
Today is the 25th anniversary of its theatrical release, and I’ve signed up for the “Life Finds A Way” Virtual Race series, complete with custom bib, tech shirt, and medal. Yes, times must be registered to get the medal.
Today is the “Must Go Faster” 5K.
And here’s how I did:
Next month will be the Dino DNA 5K!
But for today, you can bet I’ll be watching all the movies 🙂
