Marathon Fever Continues

Still hyped over the Boston Marathon? Want to get your run on while watching another race this weekend? It's not exactly easy to hop across the pond and watch Sunday's Flora London Marathon live, but you can tune into all the action online and on TV through Universal Sports.

Universal Sports is airing all of the spring races part of the World Marathon Majors and you can tune in at either or check with your cable provider to see if the TV station is carried in your area (lucky for me I've tuned into all of the Universal Sports skiing, triathlon and running coverage all winter). You can watch London's Marathon live beginning at 4 a.m. eastern time, or tune in at 9 a.m. eastern time to watch it in a slightly more appeasing time slot.

It's shaping up to be a race filled with several big American names, all gunning for fast times and podium finishes. Meb Keflezighi is looking for redemption on Sunday after withdrawing from the race in 2005 and 2008, and quitting after 16 miles in 2007. He's looking to best his 2:09:53 from the New York Marathon when he took second place five years ago. After finishing as the top American marathoner at the Beijing Olympics, Dathan Ritzenhein wants to best the 2:11 he ran at the 2007 Olympic Trials and become a force to reckon with in distance running. On the women's side, Kate O'Neill, who made her debut at the heat-soaked 2007 Chicago Marathon, will toe the line looking to break 2:30.

Check it out on Sunday. And good luck to those running! Posted by Kate
