ALL ACCESS sends congrats to COX Dir./Top 40 Programming and WBLI/LONG ISLAND PD JEREMY "DON'T CALL ME JJ ANYMORE" RICE on an amazing NYC MARATHON. He ran the 40km race in 4:15:55.60, beating last year's time of 4 hrs 51 mins, by 36 full minutes.
To put some perspective on how hard this race is, LANCE ARMSTRONG, who is one of the world's best athletes, ran his first NYC MARATHON and made barely his goal of doing the event in under three hours, turning in a time of 2:59:36. He told reporters, "Even after experiencing one of the hardest days of the Tour, nothing has ever left me feeling this bad," calling the race "the hardest physical thing I have ever done."
But JEREMY did beat ADAM GRAVES of the NY RANGERS. JEREMY, you really know how to run it! Congrats, again!
