Making fitness a priority (and where the heck has Skatey-Mark been all this time?)

Hey everyone… Just thought I’d post something to explain the lack of messages from me lately… 2007 was a pretty rough year with regard to work. Early in the year, my job started demanding more and more time from me. This put a pretty serious cramp in my training, especially for the Montreal 24 hour race. Fortunately, I was able to do some “last minute cram training” and got to the point where I could do the event. However, it wasn’t long afterward that the job started sucking

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly Book Commentary

Apparently I'm still not learning the lesson. With a strong sense of irony, I feel like I don't have the time to write a coherent commentary about Jean-Dominique Bauby's blink-dictated account of his life with post-stroke 'Locked-in Syndrome', in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

 

What's more, I can't bring myself to call this a 'book review' either, as the term for me connotates critique, and how can anyone review or judge the bottom-line nuts and bolts of ugly human life? It is what it is, whether I like it or not.

Inline Skating in Guilford County, NC: Parks & Recreation Website Includes Skaters (as Athletes!) Rollerblading

The Guilford County Parks and Recreation webpage has icons you can check if you're searching for a local park with a particular feature, e.g., paved trails, disc golf, horse-riding trails, etc. They have some very specific little icons, and the skater looks a little out of control, but I'm happy that my chosen sport is included here. Get this: they've even lumped skaters in under the 'Athletic' category, and not in the 'playground' section. Yay.

Inline Hockey Net Minder Chuffed at Being Girl Goalie for Great Britain

Here's a nice story of a gal who's not afraid to let the inline puck hockey players fire away while she's at the goal. I don't need any part of flying objects wizzing by (or worse, not going by but hurting me), on skates or off. You go girl. You go everyone for letting her give it a shot...or a block. It's a shame many girls don't get to play baseball here in the USA instead of (or rather, in addition to) softball, in my unimportant opinion. This is just based on how much more I enjoyed baseball than softball. I don't mean this as disrespect to anyone who loves softball better.

An Ancient 27-Year Old Hits the Ice for Some Speedskating Fun

Funny how my parents think I'm young, and I think I'm old sometimes, young others, mostly depending if I've been forced to look in a mirror, or to look at my hands, or help me, otherwise be faced with reality of that sort. The inner reality is often far different, and yay for that....
