Lance Armstrong running injury
TredzTalk recently posted about Lance Armstrong running an excellent sub 3 hour New York marathon. Well it turns out he did on a fractured leg! Just when I thought this guy can’t go up in my estimation any further he shows he’s even more super human.
"I knew I had shin splints from training, but I certainly didn’t think there was anything broken, and I just attributed the pain to the amount of effort it takes to complete a marathon." No wonder he thought it was more difficult than any Tour he’s ridden.
We’ve all got two opportunities to race him next year: the NYC marathon again next November and the Leadville 100 mile bike race in Colorado in August – if you want to travel to the States, that is.
