Catching Up on Anderson Cooper Extras.....

Anderson Cooper tweeted the following tonight and we located the above picture from when Anderson was in Portland for part of the 60 Minutes shoot. 

Here's the article about the shoot....

Shalane Flanagan To Be Featured On "60 Minutes"
Anderson Cooper follows Flanagan as she trains for Boston Marathon.

For the first time in its long, vaunted history, CBS’s “60 Minutes” will feature an American marathon star. On Sunday evening’s show, Anderson Cooper follows Shalane Flanagan in Boston and Portland, Oregon, as she preps for the 118th running of the Boston Marathon on April 21.

Flanagan has been the U.S.’s top distance runner for nearly a decade. She won a bronze medal in the 10,000 meters at the 2008 Beijing Olympic, and placed fourth last year in her first Boston Marathon. She grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts, roughly 15 miles northeast of downtown Boston.

The 12-minute segment on Flanagan was produced by Coleman Cowan, a serious marathoner who ran 2:58 at the New York City Marathon last November. Cowan will be running his third consecutive Boston Marathon on April 21.

Cowan said "60 Minutes" had three main reasons for the Flanagan story: Her Boston roots; her attempt to improve on last year’s effort; and the marathon itself, one year after the bomb explosions. The marathon angle is covered through interviews with Boston Athletic Association executive director Tom Grilk, and Boston police commissioner William Evans, who ran his 18th Boston Marathon last year, and then spent nearly four sleepless days directing the manhunt for the alleged bombers.

Concerned that non-running viewers might have little interest in a marathon story, Cowan and "60 Minutes" worked especially hard to capture the feel of running. They followed Flanagan with a moving camera on a Boston-course workout that stretched from Wellesley to the finish. In Portland, a cameraman on a Segway filmed Flanagan on wooded trails and along the Willamette River.
