Most moving assignment EVER

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.
