Carl Lewis - marathon challenge

Postby Konstantin » Wed Mar 23, 2011 1:37 pm

Olympic champion sprinter Carl Lewis is going to be 50 this year so is taking on a marathon. He says the furthest he has ever run is FOUR MILES!!

You can see his video here.

This is going to be really interesting.

Another vegan-running-celeb story is Bassist Flea from Red Hot Chilli Peppers. he just took up distance running and did the LA marathon, finishing in 3:53:00. Not bad for a 48 yo novice.

Is flea vegan? He is an amazing guy, little crazy but great musician and funky dresser.

I hear he's vegan, but it's internet evidence. There's much more reliable evidence that the vocalist Anthony Keidis (spelled wrong!) is vegan tho. Carl Lewis definitely was during and post career - he felt it helped him look better for his acting career.
