The article focuses on trained opera singer and proud house husband Wolfgang Schwerk in New York City. Schwerk is not employed by his MegaMarathon sponsor Lanxess GmbH, but does employ his legs to promote the company's products. He ran 3,100 miles around an apartment block in Queens, requiring only 41 days, eight hours, 16 minutes and 29 seconds to do so. Neither doping or outstanding fitness were behind his success, it was his clothing and his running shoes from Lanxess.
