On being "fit" and leaping over cars:

I'm a fairly big guy at 5'10", 225 lbs. One day I was marshaling for a race and had to make several leaps to avoid getting hit. The announcer felt the need to make this statement:
"Wow! Anyone ever see an eighth of a ton levitate before?" I started laughing and fell down and got run over on the way back to the side of the track.

Seriously though the best way to marshal is use the golden rule:
Treat people the way you would want to be treated. To me that means make the effort as best as you can cuz if you don't when YOU crash who knows what the marshal will do?
