Officials with the 2008 Boston Marathon have confirmed that Lance Armstrong will be competing in the April 21 event, considered one of the world's premier marathons, after qualifying for it with his performance in New York in November 2007.
Lance ran the NYC marathon in 2:46:43, beating the 3:15 cut-off for Boston qualification in his 35-39 age group by almost a half hour. This was his second time running New York; you might remember that he ran it in 2006 in 2:59:36 after doing almost no training for it. At the time, he said it was "the hardest thing I've ever done."
Is there anything that guy can't do?
