I'm Disappointed in you, Lance

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

So I know it is all over the news so everyone is probably on Lance Armstrong overload but I feel so betrayed so I wanted to blog about it.

I'm not huge into biking or anything but I do (did) really love Lance. I have never really read anything about his personality (until today) but I just thought he was such an inspiration and he charity work was amazing. Sure, there have always been rumors about drug use but I had sincerely hoped he was telling the truth. I'm not naive but we just need a good, true inspirational story.

So now he admits it and I've found out he's really just a bully only concerned with Lance. This takes away so much from his charity work to me and is such a disappointment. Not only has he lied and done illegal things but he has destroyed lives and sued people along the way...just to further this lie.

I pray that the cancer organization can go on without him and still succeed in bettering people's lives touched by this horrible disease and that he hasn't destroyed that along with his career.

In happier's Tuesday!! Have a great week!

    I am also extremely disappointed. The performance enhancing drugs is bad enough. But to lie about it, to lie about other people and attack and sue them for telling the truth, is egotistical and destructive.

    I totally agree with you. I read one of his books once for inspiration, and now to find out he's a disappointing.

    I, too, also hope the cancer group can survive all of this - what a damned shame......

    Oh good I'm not the only one. I don't follow biking either, but he was such an inspiration....I thought. Now I feel cheated somehow. It was all a lie and I just can't wrap my head around it.

    I too was disappointed to learn of the truth - some kids never learn that lying is hard to maintain and one is bound to get caught. I was so hoping that he was clean.. I had bought his book many years ago and now I can't even bring myself to keep it.. it is truly a shame that a) he did it and b) he denied it for so long.. better to have been clean and then come clean..

    happy tuesday - and the rest of the week - to you all

    I have never liked him as an individual, however, his foundation has done a lot of good for kids and adults with cancer. I hope he distances himself from it so that they can continue their work.

    He is what he is. So much good, so much bad.

    I also hope the organization also go forward. Not withstanding he being a liar and cheat. He still did alot of good with his name and hopefully that will not all be lost.

    Happy Tuesday to you too.
