Count me in as one of the people who believed that Lance Armstrong was clean. (I know... Pollyanna...) I was angry at our hometown boy Tyler Hamilton for his own admissions to doping... because I defended and believed in Tyler, too. But Lance, well, his betrayal cuts even deeper. I've supported the LiveStrong Foundation. I've worn the yellow bracelets. I was thrilled when Lance rode the Pan Mass Challenge 2 years ago and was grateful for his support in the PMC. I thought he was an amazing athlete and a true inspiration -- but I especially admired him for what he did off the bike for cancer survivorship. Part of me had a feeling he was cheating, (knowing how prevalent doping is in cycling), but I chose not to believe it. I wanted to believe in Lance. What a shame.
