Behind the Shoot: Shalane Flanagan

The best way to spend a Saturday is with the number 10 ranked female marathoner in the world: Shalane Flanagan. The Olympic bronze medalist stepped into our Portland, Ore., studio like she does every starting line—ready to work. After several great shots and multiple wardrobe changes, Shalane led us to the nearby Nike headquarters in Beaverton, where she does most hard track workouts. (She even has her own parking spot!) Our crew was in awe of the oval that jetted through some gorgeous Pacific Northwest trees—but we were most stoked to get a day with a future Boston Marathon champion!
