The denial is over. Me and cross were more than likely a match made in heaven, but I guess I was in denial. Since my “lifestyle change” in 2006 (the losing 100 lbs and getting back in shape thing) I flirted with running and with triathlons and duathlons. And I had a blast. But there was always “something” missing.
Different circumstances and events have leaded me to cross in the past months, and it is finally all coming together! I currently have my favourite bike mech starting to put together my cross bike (a very VERY sweet full carbon Italian beast – a deal I simply could not resist). I actually feel my road bike is feeling something is up. He’s getting suspicious…
I will capture here my journey to cross self-destruction as I get ready to get stomped by the local studs. And all with a smile (well most of the time!).
I just hope y’all enjoy my sometime creative writing! Just my little way of leaving a “cyber footprint”.
Note: English is not my first language and part of writing this is to practice it, so please be somewhat tolerant with the bad syntax and the typos!
Countdown to first race: 170 days
