Runner's World Media Group throws a huge party every year for the Boston Marathon. I was asked to illustrate portraits of 3 Marathon champions "Amby" Burfoot, Joan Benoit and Greg Meyer for the Runner's World Boston Marathon Party Invitation. Traci was a delight to work with on this 3 panel illustration.
Art Director: Traci Conrad-Nicholas
"Amby" Burfoot, on the left, is the founder of Runner's World Magazine and winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon . Joan Benoit holds the 1983 Womens' World Record for the Boston Marathon, clocking a mighty 2:22:42. Greg Meyer is the last American man to win the Boston Marathon, he did it back in 1983, running an impressive 2:09:00.
