Lance Armstrong is a retired American professional road racing cyclist. He won the Tour de France - cycling’s most prestigious race - seven consecutive times, from 1999 to 2005.
He has truly been an inspiration to me.
Lance has used his fame and accomplishments to brand himself as a true role model. He inspires others suffering from cancer, as well as people who have big or small challenges in their lives. His motto: "Pain is temporary, quitting is forever" can be applied to so many situations. He has truly been an inspiration to me.

Come on people!
No doubt, the man is a true hero! To overcome a devastating disease and win an absolutely gruelling monster of a bike ride . . . he is remarkable. I think he is someone we can look to on a daily basis for inspiration and share his story with our children. Hmmm?! Why haven't the LIVE STRONG yellow rubber bracelets been nominated?! What a great, easy and totally "Lovemark" way to raise money for cancer research (www.livestrong.org) -- come on people!

He is a true hero. I admire that he was brave enough to fight off cancer. He is an inspiration to all (or at least to me)

Lance is an inspirer (if there's such a word). Not only through his remarkable biking prowess, but also through his battle for survival and his general good-guy image. Lance, I salute you!
