If You Build It....

Lance once said, “Now I only have good days and great days.” This is a saying I try to remind myself of on days when things get tough.



Regardless of whether or not you define yourself as a cyclist, you have been blessed with the power of the mind. As humans we excel when we are inspired, when we are motivated, when our minds are positive.



Well today as I rolled along the sun-drenched roads of Florida, I found my mind wandering, forgetting these encouraging thoughts, and putting myself in a mental rut. I was thinking of nothing but getting home and getting comfortable. I am sure each of you can relate…



Lucky enough for me, the Travel Channel is having an afternoon devoted to Lance and the organization surrounding the 7-time champion. Just when you think you know what work ethic is, Lance rewrites the definition and raises the bar. He has reminded me what it means to be inspired, to be motivated and to stay positive. Cheers to those who dream big and work harder, you are an inspiration.
