Le Tour de France

Le Tour de France is in it’s 96th running.

What’s the point?  It’s a 21-day competition.  Over 3,500 miles.  Seriously, 3,500 miles.  Think about it.

Some say it’s the world’s toughest athletic competition.  I would have to agree.

Time trials.  Flats. Sharp turns. Mountains.  For 21 days.  And these cyclists are riding hard.  Every single day.

Punishing. Grueling.  Relentless.

And then there’s this guy, maybe you’ve heard of him, Lance Armstrong.

Seven consecutive Tour de France victories.

Excellence.  Focus.  Drive.  Strategy.  Perseverance.  Tenacity.  Intensity.

Traits to live by, eh?

Or as Lance Armstrong suggests – traits to Live Strong!
