Keeping with their tradition of doing something interesting during the ING New York Marathon, Asics running shoes installed a 60-foot video wall in the Columbus Circle subway station and challenged passersby to race against top U.S. marathoner Ryan Hall. Of course, few people could keep up with his 6-foot-10 stride length and 4:46 mile pace, even for 60 feet. (He chugs along like that for 26.2 miles.)

Thanks to Kevin C. Smith for today’s fodder.
