SPRINT TO SEE “THE HUMAN RACE” & FLIPPING OVER TIGER

 

Two time Emmy nominee, Actor Liz Vassey shares her passion for all things creative including her new documentary, “The Human Race”.  This spectacular film follows runners with varying skill levels that are above fifty that are avid to obsessed with running and their stories are awe inspiring and guaranteed to empower you to embrace the outdoors and pick up a former sport and or begin running.  Mark and Liz discuss the overwhelming health benefits from the obvious weight management aspect to staving off dementia and other age related cognitive issues.  And if you ever find yourself stuck in a pandemic, running is ideal to keep anxiety in check and burn off accumulating stress from COVID – or the family one is isolating with.   

 

Runner’s World magazine wrote “The Human Race is one of the top twenty best running documentaries that will inspire you to move."

Liz Vassey moved to New York at the age of sixteen to join the cast of ALL MY CHILDREN. Since the soap, Liz has appeared as a regular or recurring character on twelve television shows including ER, MAXIMUM BOB, NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, BROTHERLY LOVE, PUSH NEVADA, TWO AND A HALF MEN, FOX’s live action version of THE TICK, and, most recently, Season Two of THE TICK reboot on Amazon.

 

Liz is probably best known for her five year run on CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION as DNA technician “Wendy Simms.” Liz has also appeared in several films (including MAN OF THE HOUSE with Tommy Lee Jones).In addition to acting, Liz is an accomplished writer. She co-wrote an episode of CSI during her last season, and has since sold six television pilots and a TV movie, developing for such networks and studios as NBC, Freeform, Universal, Sony, Netflix, and CW.  One of Liz's scripts was picked for the auspicious 2020 Write Her List, in which 20 pilots are selected from hundreds of nominations from industry executives and creatives.
