Yesterday I received a call from my friend Chris Koch. He lives in Alberta and works on his farm. Chris loves skateboarding in a big way. We met a few years ago on Facebook. He enters marathons on his skateboard. Below is his logo for his motivational company If I Can.

If anyone tells me that they’re no longer interested in skateboarding or they feel somewhat incapable of receiving any joy from the magic rolling board, I often think of Chris.

The amount of pure energy this guy generates is at a level not seen since Nicky Tesla. He spoke to over a 1,000 students yesterday in Calgary. I am sure they  were blown away by his message of getting out there and making things happens. As you can plainly see, Chris is not going to let anything like the absence of limbs to stop him from rolling.

I am pleased to announce that Chris will once again be our “poster man” (as opposed to poster child) for this year’s Roll for Peace.

It’s happening on April 22 around the world. It’s the same day as Earth Day.

See how that all lines up? Nice and easy – you can celebrate peace AND the earth.

It’s Friday and I’m up early typing away on this blog and thinking about the future

It’s been about 3 weeks since we launched and frankly, being a magazine publisher these days is not exactly filled with an abundance of easy peasy lemon squeezy experiences. It’s tough out there. And yet, today is free of snow and rain and I am going skating. Sure, it’s probably 38 degrees out there (-1 celcius or so) but I don’t care. As my good friend Sean says “did you actually skate TODAY?”

So get out there and roll!
