I don’t think he could stop, even if he wanted to. Mark Meyers is a wicked fast marathoner I shot for Runner’s World on a cold December day in Wisconsin. My spectacular assistant David Ettinger served as placeholder as Meyers booked around the track:
Still, keeping him in the frame proved challenging.
Tenacity yielded results, but didn’t slow Meyers. He kept running.
I am grateful that he paused here to correct the Earth’s rotation:
Meyers’ recent marathon times are in the 2:40’s. As a fellow runner I’m in awe at this level of ability: by the time I’m finishing up he’s already home and half-way through Chariots of Fire.
