Lance Armstrong: Preparing for Return

September 9, 2008 at 9:24 pm Leave a comment

Ted Kennedy will not be the only one returning back to their lifetime passion! It has been recently announced that Lance Armstrong will be returning next summer for the Tour de France! It looks to me as though his head is in the right place and he will NOT settle for second place!

Added Bill Stapleton, Armstrong’s lawyer and longtime confidant: “We’re not going to try to win second place.”

Armstrong will join the list of many athletes who come back from retirement: Brett Favre for example.  Lance Armstrong  retired in 2005 after  a first place finish in the Tour de France.  This time however, he seeks his eighth victory.  In 2004 he released a very widely popular yellow wristband with the name of his organization, Livestrong,  on it.  Since his short lived retirement, Lance Armstrong has taken a political stance on cancer, the disease that almost ended his life.

“I had the disease and I hate it and I hate that we haven’t made enough progress against it.”

Click here to watch a video that Lance Armstrong made to announce his unexpected return.  In my opinion Lance Armstrong is an amazing role model for anyone fighting cancer; I definitely support his return!
