Do you know the runner known as Coatman?

You all know of Coatman, right? The marathon runner who wears a winter coat (which is sometimes DENIM), a big tie, and dress shoes, and carries a tray topped with a bottle and glass, waiter-style? Yeah, he has completed over 125 marathons.


CoatmanApparently, the name for people that wear something or carry something that makes it considerably more difficult to finish a race are called “stunt runners.” I love me some stunt runners!

UPDATE: The runner known as Coatman left a comment (see below). And, yes, he did ask if I would be his agent. Levi’s, contact me, and let’s get something goin’ with you and the awesome Coatman!
