"Miramos, Esperamos, Decidimos, Attacamos"
I see, I wait, I decide, I attack.
and did he mentions "I win"?
''Every Second Counts'' is Lance Armstrong, 7 CONSECUTIVE times winner of the Tour De France, one of the world''s toughest race, if not the most, sequel to ''It''s Not About the Bike'', featuring his wins and his personal life experiences.
Nothing is as succinct as what he says that "Cancer is the best thing that happened in my life". It made him realised that he was happy to be alive and that is precisely he pushes himself to seriously a major chop out above the rest of the pack. Ranging from how he ritually takes the 50 foot plunge into a quarry lake to wake himself up in the cold water that he is alive to his work at the Armstrong Foundation for cancer research fund raising and his US Postals teammates'' phenomenal team spirit and capabilities, this book is a riveting read.
Discover more about the personal life about one of the most popular sports figure now who came back from testicular cancer to win 7 times in a row in cycling''s toughest race (and the world''s toughest if i might say so). It is inspiring to learn how he so motivated with his training even though his time is so split between commitments. Atheletes should read this to if they ever wonder how someone can push themselves so hard.
He paints us pictures of his time races and endurance tactics with his opponents such as Jan Ulrich, another famous cyclist and one of his respected opponents, how he burns them with his speed, finding houses in Spain and France to settle down and train for his Europe events, his ordeal over the EPO (erypoietin) drug scandal and how he is innocent, his work at the cancer foundation and his US Postal teammates'' guffaws and inside jokes like "I can''t feel the chain".
All in all, an extremely good read for those who in need of inspiration. If you read this sequel, don''t forget to definitely read the former "It''s not about the Bike" prequel. Enjoy the book!
