Tour de France

Tour De France, Cycling, Utrecht 2015

You might end up saying;”That’s Easy; It’s a Bicycle Race.” And for the most part you would be right, that it is. But it is a lot more than that really. The Tour de France evaluations for individual will, intent and endurance. Like the Olympic Games, the Tour de France invites peoples from all the world to compete to see who has the will, internal strength, athletic ability and desire to perform at super human levels. It is rather fitting that Lance Armstrong has won this event seven days. Surely it puts him at the top of the list of the best athlete of our current period, but it does more than that. It shows us that anything is possible; this is if you are prepared to sacrifice and press on through any hardship. It is emotionally moving to watch Lance Armstrong, similar to how American audiences fell in love with Rocky. A story any athlete could relate, a story that anyone who has ever made it through the rain, knows. A Superman, who has over come his kryptonite, not because he wanted celebrity, but since it had been there; the hills, the competition, the Tour de France as well as cancer stood in his way. He beat the odds, by shear will and strength and now he has shown us why;”We should Live Strong.”
The Tour de France is a race really one, which tries men’s souls. That is what the Tour de France is. Although Lance Armstrong makes it look easy, if you are to watch closely you can see it is far from easy. Still at the end a guy who rides the conversation, competed and did the seemingly impossible. One has to ask themselves, if Lance Armstrong can do so, then certainly we could raise a good family, surely we can succeed in our own live and we definitely can improve ourselves. He came from behind, rose up, was knocked down and refused to surrender to hardship. Now he stands were he belongs, at the top of the podium in the Jersey, that’s the color of the Sun. This hardship he has over come has built a”strength of character’ unmatched by average men. Now he has given of himself by example to show us that anything could be done, if you work hard, play fair and Never, ever, ever, ever give up. We have so few examples such as Lance Armstrong; modern day heroes, which really inspire a nation. In Lance Armstrong’s case he’s inspired the World.
May I now ask you a question:”What are you waiting for and where do you want to go now?”
