Armstrong Meets Goal in Marathon Debut

NEW YORK (AP) - About an hour after the men's and women's champions had crossed the finish line, the crowd really started to buzz at the New York City Marathon.
Lance Armstrong was coming.

The seven-time Tour de France champion made an impressive marathon debut Sunday, accomplishing his goal of finishing in less than 3 hours and thrilling fans who seemed much more enthused at seeing Armstrong than watching a Brazilian man and a Latvian woman win titles earlier on a crisp autumn afternoon.

Armstrong's time was 2 hours, 59 minutes and 36 seconds.


This man truly amazes me.... LIVESTRONG!

And unlike Mr Ego, last year his ex did not need all the celeb pacers to drag her to the finish line.

Wow - I guess just because he 'retired' from professional biking did not mean he had retired from racing.

I saw his finish. He was sure shot.
The hubby is an avid biker and wears his LiveStrong bracelet. He's 59, and rides his bike 40 miles and thinks nothing of it.

I didn't know the guy had his posse with him. Did Sheryl Crow run last year, (his ex, or was it is ex wife?)

I'm clueless
