Mellow Yellow Monday - Lance Armstrong


Lance Armstrong, seven-time winner of Tour de France and cancer survivor, was in Tucson last week promoting his new book and training with his cycling teams.

Armstrong signed books for one hour yesterday at Border's Books at Park Place Mall. Many fans were waiting in line snapping pictures and some wore yellow in his honor.







Here is Armstrong's cycling team heading down Sabino Canyon road on Friday morning.
Was Lance Armstrong actually riding with his team in these photos? We don't know.

Armstrong's Comeback 2.0: Up Close and Personal is a photo-journal of his 2009 comeback season with the goal to take the LIVESTRONG message around the world. If you click on the photo below you can visit his website where you can see sample photos from the book.

Wow--that's neat that you got to 'see' Lance Armstrong, Diane. I always admired him so much--especially after coming back from cancer. WOW!!!!

You can pretend that Lance himself was in that group of bikers... ha

Hugs,
Betsy
