As someone who has worked hard in Annapolis on public health issues and to promote physical fitness, I want all of us to be inspired to stay healthy and active in whatever ways we chose. We have the right to be able to trust the integrity of all professional sports and not be betrayed by those we admire, whether in baseball or cycling. In this sense, Lance Armstrong has failed us profoundly. However, in our own ways, we can both receive and give inspiration to each other, and ourselves, for the level of our own efforts. We do not need Mr. Armstrong for that.
