Three-time Hawaii Ironman qualifier Mary Eggers challenged Lance Armstrong to a duel in the pool for charity, and he accepted! The challenge has raised $40,000 so far, with the two taking to the pool on Saturday, April 28. Visit Teenslivingwithcancer.org/duel-in-the-pool for more information and check out part of Eggers’ blog post below:

The most important rule in competition is knowing your opponent. I know exactly what you have been up to this week. Thank you Strava. And…..” Juan”.

Shouldn’t that be part of the “Sh*t triathletes say video?” Welcome to triathlon Mr. Armstrong.

Five weeks ago I issued you a challenge on Twitter, and much to my surprise……. you accepted.  Since then we have raised over $40,000 dollars for Teens Living With Cancer and Livestrong. A media storm has stirred up all around us and we have been able to shed a big spotlight on this organization and these Teens.

I am incredibly grateful to you Mr. Armstrong. I know your schedule this weekend and that you are doing this is really above and beyond. Thank you so much for accepting the challenge. But I am not going to take it easy on you.
