The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Lance Armstrong the High School Cross Country Champ

Here is a photo of a young Lance Armstrong in high school at Plano East High School during a cross country meet.

Armstrong has run three marathons (NY twice, Boston once) during his first retirement from cycling.  His marathon PR is 2:46:43.  He has also competed in several triathlons as well during his athletic career.

I am not sure if Lance was a high school cross country champ but with his drive and genetic disposition it’s a pretty safe assumption.

And on yeah, this young lad, in the photo above, has won cycling’s prestigious Tour de France seven times.

    Actually, Lance did get second at this race. This was 1988-89 at the District 9-5A Cross Country Meet at UT Dallas, the last year Lance competed for Plano East. The race winner, Richard Hird from Berkner High School, won the meet his sophomore-senior years.
