Livestrong Ride press conference

Just got back from the official press conference for the upcoming Livestrong Ride (25 min. ride from NoPo to OHSU..not bad huh?).

Notables in attendance where none other than Jonathan Nicholas (in a black suit no less), Phil Knight (head cheese at Nike), and Craig Nichols (Lance’s doctor).

Lots of official-looking people wearing bright yellow hats schmoozing, eating cookies and lemonade. All the local network news affiliates were there too with their cameras (story at 11!). I think this is going to be a bigger deal than I thought.

Quote from Phil Knight:

“This is a wonderful day for the state of Oregon. We have many endorsees…but Lance is special. He is hope in human form.”

And I would have some tasty pictures for you…but like a true novice journalist, I forgot my camera!
