Lance Struggles in New York Marathon

November 6th, 2006 · No Comments · Cycling, Tour de France, Track & Field

Lance Armstrong competed in the New York Marathon on the weekend. He finished in a credible time for a non-runner at just under 3 hours. With his huge aerobic fitness level that he has shown on the bike in winning the Tour de France seven times, you would think it would be a walk in the park for him. He struggled, and said afterwards that it was the hardest physical thing he has ever done. This will bring joy to all the distance runners out there to get the credit for the hard work that they regularly go though. Maybe it was so tough for him as he is not with a cycling team anymore, and therefore does not have the team resources to ‘aid’ his performance.
