The best thing about July is Le Tour De France. For 21 days I am amazed and inspired by the cyclists pushing themselves to the limit around one of the most beautifully stunning countries in the world. I watch the Tour as much for the competition as for the beauty of the French countryside. As I watch, I imagine that I am there. I take the in beauty with my eyes, taste the foods, hear and feel the excitement. One day, I will experience it for real. For now, I am so grateful for the live coverage on TV!
July 5, Stage 1 - Brest Plumelec 197.5 km
