By Lance Armstrong in his first marathon, his right shin. The seven-time Tour de France champ and cancer survivor called the 2006 New York City Marathon the "hardest physical thing I've ever done." Ten days after he finished, tests showed that the three-hour barrier (he ran 2:59:36) was not the only thing he broke. "I knew I had shin splints," Armstrong said, "but I certainly didn't think there was anything broken, and I just attributed the pain to the amount of effort it takes to complete a marathon." Armstrong said that he will return for the New York marathon next year.
