Here's another attempt at panning around and running along side a shot. As you can see he was running pretty quick, but the shot stayed pretty steady. Although the Steadicam Merlin works well for flying shots, I still prefer to use my Cheesycam DIY Stabilizer when trying to keep up with fast running shots and weird terrain. Also it's a great portable solution if you're worried about bringing out your expensive gear. I once used this camera stabilizer when recording some paintball action. (Definitely don't want to take an $800 dollar Merlin out to that).
