In the aftermath of the Election, I’ve struggled for words and motivation, wondered if all the effort I make in sport — or writing about it — is worth it, or if I need to start putting my efforts to something more substantial and meaningful.
But I haven’t stopped and that inertia alone may be its own payback as things evolve and hopefully not devolve over the coming months.
I finished up the road season in New Haven and Boston.
After 15 years away, I raced a nearly full cyclocross program, spending perhaps as much time on the ground as on the bike.
I got on snow early and have carried that bike racing fitness into the new season. Seventeen hours in 5 days at MSA has just add to that base.
Winter is coming.
Winter is here.
