I have a lot of things I need to blog about. I have overdue product reviews coming out of my ears. I have topics that have been brewing in my mind for days. But as I sit here at the computer, I cannot focus on any of it. I am distracted by the latest news regarding Lance Armstrong’s admission to taking performance enhancing drugs in an interview with Oprah. The dissappointment, the accusations, the headlines…the news is everywhere. My mind is a little numb over it.
But there is one thing I am sure about.
A few months ago, at Thanksgiving dinner, to be exact, I was asked by someone I had just met that afternoon why I was still wearing my Livestrong bracelet, now that Lance had been convicted of doping and stripped of all of his titles. Without hesitation, I told him exactly why I was still wearing it.
And now, my answer is still the same today as it was on Thanksgiving, and the same as it always will be.
The yellow livestrong foundation bracelet I’ve worn for the last 7 years will stay on my wrist. Because for me LIVESTRONG was never about Lance Armstrong. Nor was it ever about cycling.
