two things in the past couple of weeks have brought me great joy and happiness! the first one i will mention is the most recent to happen……
lance armstrong won his 7th and final tour de france! my passion for this race, which is the greatest sporting event and the greatest test of strength and human conditioning started back in 1986 when greg lemond became the first american to win the tour.
lance set new standards and highs for this great race and i will miss him. there probably will never be anyone who will be able to dominate this event the way lance has. winning 7 tours is hard enough, but to win 7 in a row is insane.
all i have to say is thank you lance for showing all cancer survivors that they not only can survive, but thrive!
thank you for honoring and respecting the history of the tour and showing us americans the greatness of this great sproting event. your awe and love for the tour is great and admirable.
thank you for not only winning, but winning with grace and dignity. and proving to the world that you can win at cycling, heck any sport and do it clean!
i for one will miss you lance, but thanks for leaveing a great legacy!
the second thing that i am excited about happened on july 16th! after two long years it finally arrived!
i was so excited to read the 6th installment of this excellent series. i will not reveal any of the plots or say who dies here, but just say that book 7 is going to be really good! i have no idea how rowling is gonna wrap this up, but she has not disappointed me yet! very good series of books and i highly recommend them!
