La Course & Tour de France 2014

Kathryn Bertine

Vincenzo Nibali won the Tour de France today. He was toasting his Astana teammates with Champagne as they rode into Paris in style. Before the tour started, I had hardly heard of him; now I am a fan. He put an incredible show of strength, determination and endurance.

Today was also the inaugural La Course event for women’ cycling in Paris. Kathryn Bertine started a petition last year to bring women to the Tour and it has now resulted in La Course. Chrissie Wellington is also part of the movement along Emma Pooley and Marianne Vos. Needless to say, I am a supporter and watched the event keenly (won by Marianne Vos) early this morning.

As for my own workout, it was the usual Sunday stationary bike followed by yoga at Lifetime Fitness. Good detox!
