Remember the first time Michael Jordan retired? He wanted to try baseball. Well he did and he was better than most people by making it to the minor leagues. But he wasn’t Michael Jordan. He was human.
Today, Lance returned to his triathalon days by running. He ran the New York Marathon. He did better than most finishing in under three hours (2:59:36) but a very human fifty minutes behind the winner Marilson Gomes dos Santos of Brazil who won in 2:09:58.
Lance even gave a very human press conference by saying:
“In 20 years of pro sports and endurance sports, even the worst days on the Tour, nothing felt like that or left me the way I feel now.”
Then again, do humans who enter the NYC Marathon have a number like his running with Alberto Salazar off his right shoulder?
In other NYC Marathon news, Endless Cycle Favorite, Martin Dugard finished in 3:35:32. Congratulations!
