Lance Armstrong marathon man

Lance Armstrong says he will run the New York Marathon this November. I'm impressed; I turned to cycling because running hurts too much.

Last year, retired pro cyclists Laurent Jalabert and Leontien Zijlaard-van Moorsel ran the NYC Marathon and finished with very good times after little training.

Friends of mine from the Boston Marathon called this to my attention yesterday, too. Guess it's hard for him to stand still after being on the go for so long.

Interestingly, his ex-wife started running marathons as part of her recovery from the divorce. I think, although I'm not positive, that she ran the New York Marathon a couple of years ago. Hmmm...
