Lance as Charity Chaser - Austin Marathon
Quote | Reply
Lance is shooting for a 2:45 marathon, running as a "charity chaser" in the Austin Marathon. Maybe we should take bets and send the money to Austin.

Saw this episode on YouTube last night

It was awesome to see Lance mention Back On My Feet, a program that started in Philly

They used to do an event here called 20in24, an "Urban Ultra" which was a 24 hour race doing loops around Fairmount Park [8.4 miles each]. There were solo competitors, as well as a 5-person team relay [4 loops each = 20 loops = 20in24]. There was also something called "Midnight Madness" which was a single 8.4, starting at Midnight [I did the first three they held, my first time ever running with a headlamp!]

Unfortunately, the only time they could get access to the Park for an entire weekend was mid-July, and almost always fell during a heatwave. Starting in 2008, the 2013 edition was cancelled altogether, and the event never returned [although they now have a 5-Miler in the Spring, and offer chiarity entries for Broad Street Run, RnR Philly and the Philly Marathon]
