MUNICH -- Uli Hoeness has decided to run for Bayern Munichs presidency, seeking to return to a job that he gave up in 2014 after being given a prison sentence for tax evasion, the Bundesliga champion said Monday. Josh Jones Jersey .Hoeness, 64, will be a candidate for the job when club members elect the president at their annual general meeting in November, Bayern said. It added that current president Karl Hopfner agreed not to seek re-election in what it termed very pleasant talks with Hoeness.Bayerns announcement followed weeks of speculation that Hoeness, one of the most prominent figures in German soccer, would return to the helm at the club.As a player, Hoeness was a Bayern star who won the 1972 European Championship and the 1974 World Cup with West Germany and three straight European Cups -- the predecessor of the Champions League -- before retiring in 1979 with chronic knee problems.Under his guidance as general manager, Bayern built financial reserves rarely seen in debt-ridden European soccer.Hoeness quit as Bayern president in March 2014 after he was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison for evading millions of euros in taxes via an undeclared Swiss bank account. He was released in February after serving half of the sentence.Hoeness has remained close to the club. While in custody, he benefited from a work-release program under which he worked in Bayerns youth department during the day before returning to prison overnight. Jamaal Williams Jersey .

John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. I cant believe race week (read: best week) is upon us. I started my journey to run my eighth marathon 120 days ago, and in four days Ill toe my feet to the line.The path hasnt been the smoothest. I had to miss a whole week of training for foot pain, I didnt finish two workouts within two weeks of the marathon, and there were many days -- even after I completed a run -- when I doubted myself. But sometimes the training is what makes it all worth it.Ive reached the tapering part of the training cycle, which is probably the toughest portion: Ive reduced my running mileage, my food and water intake matters more and sleep is even more important. Meanwhile, I have more and more time to stress about how my body is feeling. So the more you can relax, de-stress, rest and stretch, the better youll feel going in to race day.About 75 percent of the approximately 50,000 participants will be running their first New York City marathon. But even if this is your 50th marathon, race day is always special. Youve put in the work, and now its time to reap the benefits of your dedication. Enjoy the day and the atmosphere and -- above all -- enjoy the people who scream your name, hand you water and make the experience once in a lifetime.I cant predict how Sunday will go, but you can count on this: It will be my fifth New York marathon, Ill have my name written on pink duct tape, espnW will be on my hat, my favorite city will be the background and two million people will be cheering me on. As Kathrine Switzer said, If youre losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon.Whether youre on the streets of New York, running in the race or watching on ABC or ESPN2, the New York City Marathon is a 26.2-mile block party, and I encourage you to join in!Some tips and remindeers for race day:Remember, you paid for this. Jamaal Williams Packers Jersey. Painful or not, at some point you thought this was a good idea.Trust your training. Theres a reason why you train for four months to run for about four hours (give or take).The medal and your celebration drink-of-choice afterward will be worth it.Whether you run your goal time or not, you finished a marathon. At the end of the day, that is pretty cool.New York spectators are loud and exciting, but be careful of the crowd on First Avenue.?They can make you go faster than you maybe should with 10 miles left. At the same time, let them carry you through the pain.Look up from the road. New York is scenic in its own right, so dont forget to look at the worlds best skyline.Duct tape your name to your shirt, or have it written on you somehow. It makes all the difference to the crowd.Youre part of a great parade. Smile, laugh and maybe cry, and at the end of the day be grateful for what your body was able to accomplish.Dont try anything new during the race.You can never have enough body glide.Training Notebook: Longest run:?16 miles. All three of my 16-milers have been completed. Time to taper!! Hardest run:?Final 10-mile tempo run. I had to stop after seven miles because of fatigue and a sore hamstring. Highest weekly mileage:?51 miles. Biggest accomplishment:?Having only three runs standing between me and the starting line!Megan Flood is a seven-time marathoner and half marathoner.
