Pink is the color of the jersey worn by Christian Vande Velde after his Slipstream-Chipotle team won the opening stage of this year's Giro d'Italia, edging out CSC and High Road. First American to wear pink since Andy Hampsten.
Pink is also the color that's on my and Carol's mind as we work through this breast cancer thing. I think the panic is gone, and now it's just waiting. We're waiting to hear when the surgery can be, since it involves coordinating the schedules of two surgeons. At the back of my mind, there is a sense of urgency: there is this thing in there, growing. It's probably not invasive, but time moves us in that direction. It's hard to wait.
