The Daily: Chara Running Another Marathon; Avs Sign Tatar




Former Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara already has a Boston Marathon on his resume and plans to add the New York Marathon to his list of accomplishments.

“I didn’t take any kind of break. I kind of sustained the physical training,” Chara told the New York Post. “I was adding to my running, getting higher mileage, getting higher bike distances. And then at one point, I knew that I would like to talk to somebody who is more experienced and somebody who would be able to put me on maybe more specific programs to reach some of the goals I set for myself. And obviously marathons was one of them. Some triathlons, Ironmans would also be in my vision.”

The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Chara finished the Boston Marathon in 3:38.23, and now in November, he’ll run the New York City Marathon in partnership with New Balance. The 46-year-old Chara is planning to become a regular  marathoner. He told The Post that he also plans on running marathons in Berlin, Tokyo, London, and Chicago.
