Look at the freaking size of that calf and quad! Yes, I am slightly jealous.

You can read the full story here, but Boaz Cheboiywo, a Kenyan native (of course) won for the 7th time in 8 years with a time of 14:30. He is currently training for the Olympic trials in the 10,000 meter or 3,000 meter steeplechase.

    Holy Cow! Those legs are CRAZY!!!!! I bet he has a hard time finding pants that will fit around those babies. I’d win too if I had muscles bulging off my legs. I think with a little training, you’ve got him next year! :)

      If I had legs like that I would just say “Screw pants!” and walk around showing those babies off! haha

      Did you notice that he is wearing shoes? Just thought I would point that out in case you missed it.

    I know the real reason you zoomed in on his lower half… and it ain’t the CALF! LOL!

    Yeah, insanely jealous of those calves, no amount of biking will ever get my calves to be larger than my head.

    Matt and Jeff take the cake on comments.

    That leg does look photoshoped he has so much definition in it. I wonder if he runs marathons or if he is more of the sprinter type at the shorter distances.

    Off to do calf raises……have fun at the mountain bike ride today. Paris to Robaix right?
