2017 36th Athens to Atlanta Road Skate (A2A.net) in Georgia USA

From their website, a2a.net, which has lots of information under "TELL ME MORE":

Athens to Atlanta (A2A) is the oldest and most famous road skate in America. Starting in Athens, Georgia, participants skate through beautiful country roads and quiet suburbia before navigating city streets and triumphantly crossing the finish line in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward Skate Park. The course is challenging and requires experienced road skating ability, courage and stamina. Skaters who may not be ready for the whole 87 miles may opt for the 38-mile event, which also starts in Athens, or the 49-mile event, which starts near Dacula, GA. Inline and quad skaters are welcome and anyone from 8 to 80 years old may enter.

 

Roadskater.net inline skaters have done A2A as many as 18 times in a row. Familiar names can be found on the A2A Duraskaters (Distance) records page.

Puente la Reina 2014 Inline Speed Skating International Marathon

This looks like a great event. Very A2A-ish, hillwise, but marathon distance. There are some pretty technical hills on the course by the looks of it. 

 

I believe a blind skater completed the race, aided by a paceline buddy. I don't know anything other than the name of the event and what's visible in the video, but I will add to this as I find out more, if I get time.

30-Day Challenge: Asthma, Allergies and Kick-Starting Fitness 2013

Let's see, where was I? Oh yeah. I was slowly making zig-zagging headway with various elimination diets regarding my various allergies and autoimmune issues. Also, there was some recent talk behind the scenes about skaters and their training and/or weight loss goals for the upcoming training season. All of the above, plus a couple of 20 minute flat skating sessions this week that left me gasping for oxygen, has prompted me to try my own 30 Day healthy eating Challenge. I'm hoping to make it past day 4 this time.

International Skating Union (ISU) Long Track and Short Track Speed Skating Live on the Web

Just a quick reminder that ISU's website streams some speed skating, depending on broadcast blackouts. As I write, the long track speed skating men's 500m is on. Soon the short track may be available too. 

http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesuite.net/isu/site/index.html

The specific link for the long track event on now is...

http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesuite.net/isu/site/index.html?video_id=9693

To check schedules, you can use the following site, but be careful with any links there and don't download .exe files or fall for ads which mention you don't have the right codec or video player. Check your downloads directory after you're finished, too! Having said that, sometimes you can find feeds for events that no USA broadcaster has purchased.

First Skating After Carolina Century 102

Nothing earth shattering here. Anybody still skating or training?

I finally made it out to Greensboro Country Park for the first skating after Carolina Century. So that means I've not skated much since Athens to Atlanta, as the weeks between the two events are mostly about getting the CC ready. How would all that non-skating affect me? 

Well, first off, my heart rate when I put the strap on was 130! Now, I've seen in the 120s for an event where I'm in a hurry or have a lot of responsibility, lots of people in town, all that. Most of the time it's under 100 getting started at Country Park. 

I got there without much time before dark, so I set minor goals. I just did a couple of laps (5k), and really was only out to enjoy it. What I noticed was:

Inline to Olympic Ice Speed Skates Again! Florida's Brittany Bowe Follows the Example of NC Speed Skater Heather Richardson

Here's a well-done if brief local piece of writing from Florida, where they are mighty proud of their inline champion, Brittany Bowe. If I have it right, she was at the US Cup when I was there, skating for Verducci (she, not me, ha!)**. I may even have some photos of her skating with the Verducci gals, not sure (might have a photo of Heather Richardson from a US10K too.. 

Thus, like many inliners, Bowe must have figured out there's not much glory in being at the top of a non-Olympic sport, and why not give it a go. (I think she may have made an attempt at cycling some time back too.) Anyway, she and High Point's Heather Richardson had raced plenty, and seeing Richardson's success surely was a factor, and likely made it easier to make the decision and follow an example for the switch over to indoor long track ice speed skating. 

This could be a powerful duo for the USA and they could be ambassadors for inline everywhere.
