Got to hand it to him. When I think of Lace Armstrong I think of myself. I could always outwalk, outbike, outswim, outendure anyone--even after I became paralyzed. Went all day on one glass of water, often alone because no one would go with me. Kept a 30 inch waist for thirty years. Now I'm in it for the long haul, planning to outwrite and outlive every quad that ever lived. Christopher Reeve, I miss your smile, but I'm the iron man that wiill see the cure. Lance, I'm gaining on ya.
