Tonight I made the mistake of sitting around looking at iPhotos from the past year. Season over, I'm 10 lbs.+ heavier, winter approaches and racing is done for the year. My "job" for the first time in my life is exactly what I want. But there are some small changes to that are coming with that that I hope work out, and people are cool with. I want to make XXC a long term thing, and a small step towards that needs to happen with the next issue.
No use getting too into it now, 'cause a bunch of work needs to be done on Issue #5 first. Each issue gets a little better, as far as content, and #5 is going to have at least 2 or 3 articles and interviews that I'm really stoked on. One is with a super nice, kick ass pro in the endurance race scene and the other is from an equally as cool, equally as nice solo national champion. Talking and corresponding with these folks make what I'm trying to do seem so right and so natural. It also made me realize yet again, that for the most part the endurance race community is made up of some damn super cool folks. Glad to be a part of it.
But no use worrying about too much now, or lamenting my winter layer. There's work to be done on many fronts. I need to get some goals. I think I may have found it. We'll see.
