ROME, Ga. — Look out, New York. Lance is ready to run.

Lance Armstrong told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he plans to compete in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 5.

“We were looking at the Chicago Marathon, but a conflict arose with the date, and New York seems to fit our schedule better,” Armstrong said in a telephone interview. “I’ve been training some, but I wouldn’t call it serious. It’s just something to fill a void in my life after I quit competing as a professional cyclist.”

Armstrong, preparing for his first marathon, retired from cycling after winning an unprecedented seventh straight Tour de France last year.

Before committing to become a full-time cyclist, Armstrong competed in triathlons as a teenager. He indicated he has no plans to run marathons or enter triathlons professionally, at least not at this time.
