Maybe they'll work it out?
Armstrong's wife says couple reconciling marriage
April 14, 2003
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Lance Armstrong's wife says she and the four-time Tour de France champion are working at reconciling their marriage, and that the family plans to be together this summer when he chases his fifth consecutive title.
In an interview with Outside magazine, scheduled to arrive on newsstands May 13, Kristin Armstrong said the couple spent several days in Nice, France, in late March.
``When we were together,'' she said, ``it was great.''
She said several events had strained their 4 1/2 -year marriage.
``We've had six homes, three languages, two countries, one cancer comeback, three children, four Tour de France wins and one rise to celebrity,'' she said. ``You're not supposed to cram such a huge amount of events into such a small period of time.''
Lance Armstrong overcame cancer on his way to four Tour wins. A fifth straight victory would tie the record of Spain's Miguel Indurain, who won from 1991 to 1995.
Kristin Armstrong said she'll take the children to the family's home in Girona, Spain, and will stay in Europe through the Tour de France.
After the race, she said ``We're going to take the month of August and play, spend some time alone. Have some fun. I think it's going to be OK.''
Telephone messages left for Armstrong's agent, Bill Stapleton, were not immediately returned Monday.
The couple announced their separation in February in an e-mail to the Austin American-Statesman
