Following an impressive finish in the Red Licorice Open water swim at the weekend, Lance Armstrong now appears to be eyeing a marathon this October. If that is the case, then it looks like Lance will not be racing Kona in 2011.
According to his @LanceArmstrong twitter account, Armstrong is looking to train for a Chicago marathon.
@Cledawgs asked: “Got any marathons planned?”
To which Armstrong responded: “eyeing the windy city for the next one.”
While it is possible to race in both an Ironman and a marathon in the same season, it is virtually impossible for an athlete to compete in both the Ironman World Championship and the Chicago Marathon. The Ironman World Championship is set for Saturday, Oct. 8 in Kona, Hawaii, with the Chicago Marathon taking place the next day on Sunday, Oct. 9 in Chicago, Ill.
Regardless of what races he ends up competing in this year, Armstrong seems to enjoy keeping us guessing.
