August 8, 2003
I spent three weeks in July glued to the most incredible reality television I've ever seen. My nights were filled with drama and suspense brought to me from the French countryside with. The cast was a list of the finest athletes on the face of the Earth. I was awed by the determination and sheer physical pain these men put themselves through. I have drawn inspiration from Tyler Hamilton, Jan Ulrich and especially Lance Armstrong. The event, for me, was purely amazing, it makes me want to do something remarkable for myself. It makes me want to excel and achieve.
