In an interview with Ironman yesterday, Lance Armstrong mentioned that "on a good day I think I can run a 1:14." Lance was speaking about the half-marathon course he'll face in tomorrow's Memorial Hermann Ironman 70.3 Texas in Galveston, which IM designated as the U.S. Pro Championship. That may not be the fastest split among top-level pros, but don't forget that Lance will undoubtedly be the fastest man on the bike.

Tomorrow, however, Lance does have some expectations, and since the race is being held in his home state, he'll have the expectations of the Lone Star state on him as well.
The competitors are chomping at the bit as well with Sebastian Kienle, who won 70.3 races in Miami and New Orleans last year claiming that if Armstrong takes off on the bike he'll "red-line" to stay with Armstrong. Bryan Rhodes also wants to make sure an finish ahead of Lance stating that only one other person (Bevan Docherty) has beaten Lance and he, Bryan, wants to be another Kiwi to do it.
