Tomorrow is the final stage of the Amgen Tour of California (ATOC), the largest cycling race in the United States, and the first U.S. race since Lance Armstrong's return to professional cycling. This final leg of the race, is by no means easy. It begins in Rancho Bernardo, CA, then the riders climb over Palomar Mountain, and it ends in Escondido, CA.
Our San Diego LIVESTRONG Army will be out there in force to cheer on Lance Armstrong & the Astana Team (& Levi, who's still managed to hang on to the yellow jersey! Levi-strong!). I'll be out with the Lance Armstrong Foundation staff and fellow San Diego LS Army volunteers, working the LIVESTRONG Booth at the Finish Line on Sunday, so please come out and say, "hi." While you're there, take a moment to sign-up and join our grassroots San Diego Army, as we work to UNITE all cancer organizations in our local area in the fight against cancer. For more information on great viewing spots & closed roads, go to or click here for an overview.
Today, many cancer survivors and fighters signed the "LIVESTRONG" banner that has made its way through several ATOC stages, and will be prominently hung along the race course tomorrow. :) From there, it'll make it's way to the European races. Thanks to all that joined our "signing party" today, whether you were signing as a survivor, cancer fighter or caregiver.
Enjoy your day tomorrow! We'll be "twittering" as much as possible to keep you updated, and we'll be uploading snippets of photo and video feeds to Also, you can follow the race at: LIVESTRONG!

A great reminder that I had armies of support beside me in my fight. (Thanks, Lance!) Even with the recent media, this video isn't about the bike...but the fight against cancer. LIVESTRONG!
