The Coolest Running Ad Ever?

Could you keep up with an elite marathoner…for 60 ft?  Judging by this video, the answer for almost everyone is no. 

To promote the 2011 NY marathon, Asics set up a video installation in NYC that lets you race U.S. Olympic marathoner Ryan Hall for 60 ft.  Ryan runs at an astonishing 4:46 minute mile pace.  I couldn’t even run 1 mile at that pace, and he runs 26.2 of them. Unreal!
