Well Lance said he was going to and he did it by competing in the Ironman in 2012. 

I woke up on February 12th, 2012 and got on my computer to see how the much anticipated debut of Lance Armstrong in the Ironman was going.  I got there about the same time Lieto and Armstrong were transitioning from the bike to the run. 

I have to admit that I felt kind of bad for Lieto when he was surpassed by Lance during the run, I’ve been a fan of his since the 2009 Boise Ironman.  From the live feed on it sounded like Lance had really found his rhythm during the run.  I have to admit I was really pulling for him as a lot of you were.

The run by Beven Docherty was outstanding in his first Ironman 70.3 in 12 years.  To close that gap Beven finished the run portion of the race in 1hr 12 min and 13sec compared to Armstrong’s 1hr 17min 01sec.

I was amazed how I could be on the edge of my seat while not being able to see any of the race actually going on.  Just the updates from Ironmanlive.  This, if you ask me was a blunder.  Not having this race televised?  Whether Lance wins or not just his presence in the race is going to draw attention.  I’m really hoping that they’ll air the coverage on this event sometime soon.

2009 Boise Ironman finish…
