Cancer survivor and superman Lance Armstrong ran in the Boston Marathon to raise awareness and funds for the Armstrong Foundation.
This is Lance’s first run at the Boston Marathon. Going into the race, Armstrong told Runner’s World that he expected to finish the 26.2 miles in roughly the 2:40ish time frame.
Bostonians were there to cheer him up Heartbreak Hill. Armstrong completed in 2:50.58, good enough for 496th place. Kudos to Lance Armstrong for finishing strong!
