SPRINTING INTO FIRST: Next week, when members of the American Society of Magazine Editors vote over lunch to select their officers, Runner's World editor and ASME treasurer David Willey is expected to be elected president. That will be a surprise to those who assumed Elle editor in chief Roberta Myers, who has served as vice president since last year, would replace Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive, whose term is expiring after two years. Past presidents Leive, Mark Whitaker, Susan Ungaro, and Cyndi Stivers all ascended from the vice presidency, though not necessarily after one year. A spokeswoman for Myers said she understood the presidency to be a time-intensive position, and that given Elle's television project with the CW network and other demands at the magazine this year, Myers would be more than happy to act as Willey's "wingman." People managing editor Larry Hackett is also expected to be elected to the board.
