I wrestled with taking a day off. I knew I needed one, but it was a perfect evening for riding or running. I finally convinced myself the rest was the best thing for me.
As you know, I’ve always been a big supporter of Lance Armstrong in his efforts to clear his name regarding performance enhancing drugs. Though he has never been tested positive for any banned substance, rumors continued to plague him as the different agencies looked into and then exhonerated him. The United States Anti-Doping Agency became his ‘straw’ and he finally stopped fighting. There is still no evidence, though USADA claims to have witnesses to testify against him. Basically, he’s telling them to shove it and do what they want to do. The following is his statement on the topic and I have reprinted it for those interested to see what he’s been going through.
