It's official - Lance Armstrong just made the official announcement that he will be competing in the 2009 Tour de France. AWESOME!!! You can visit the Livestrong blog to read the official announcement, and view a short video of the man himself: Armstrong to return pro cycling.
I was so excited to hear the news, that I left the following comment on the Livestrong blog:
You ROCK Lance! I was just hired to be the cycling blogger for the Charity Mile website. My Thursday post will be all about your return to professional cycling!
My husband, 52 years old in October, and I, 45 years old in November, are participating in our third season with the Leukemia Society’s Team in Training cycle team. He is coaching and I am mentoring the team that is training for the October 26th Intracoastal Century Ride in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Age is just a number, it’s all about maintaining a positive attitude.
All the bike rides we do benefit non-profit organizations. Some year we’d like to do the Livestrong Challenge, wish there was a ride in our area (S Florida).
