Running Runner Huckabee to Run Boston Marathon

It didn't quite have the splash of Lance's announcement that he was running the Boston Marathon this year (post), but it's pretty big news that presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, will toe the line in Hopkinton as well. It will be his fifth marathon (PR 4:26:05), which he'll be running as part of the charity, Team Hoyt (site). Regardless of your politcal leanings, your have to appreciate such an ambitious goal given the time crunch of campaigning. That he's been spending so much energy fending of the smears of fiscal conservatives since Iowa makes it even more impressive. Check out the Boston.com article on Huck in Hopkinton (story).
