Lance Races Into Columbia

Back in the days of the robocalls before the elections, there was one "personal" appeal that stood out to the Columbia Talk team. Cancer survivor and bicycling hero Lance Armstrong called to urge a vote for a certain local county exec candidate named Ulman. Now the seven-time winner of the Tour de France is coming to Columbia on behalf of a local cancer foundation started by another Ulman, and cancer survivor, Doug (Doug also is president of Lance's foundation).

According to the Sun, Lance will attend some athletic events as part of his appearance in October.

Guess that means it is time to pull in the tummy and search the closet for those padded shorts.
