Inline Skating 300 Miles in 24 Hours for Three Charities: Please sponsor me!

[I posted this (with minor edits) for ShabbatSam who is making his way to Canada as I type. If you found it here and decided to donate, please let ShabbatSam know RSN sent you. No we don't get anything but skateylove out of it if you mention us...and that's plenty. Congratulations in advance, ShabbatSam, for your effort. We have at least one Roadskater.net skater, SkateyMark, who will be intensely interested in your progress. --Roadskater]

How Was Your 2008 Montreal 24-Hour Inline Race?

I was just wondering, for those who did the 2008 Montreal 24-Hour Inline Race, how was it for you? Tell us whatever you can while you can still remember it. Share stuff about...who, what, when, where, how, how many, how much, how fast, how fun, what you'd want to be different from the race organizers, what you'd want to do differently, what you'd want your team to do in the future, and do you think you'd do it again? This is open to all participants from any team and soloskaters too. Please share your thoughts while you can remember them. We're interested!

Montreal 24-Hour Inline Race Report

2 Texas Flyers, Biff and I, skated Montreal 24-Hour last weekend (http://inline24.com/). Skatey-Mark got 2nd in this event last year.

Smooth road surface.  Each relay team has up to 10 skaters. Laps are 2.7 miles; team members take a lap usually every 1 to 1.5 hrs. Or if you're going through midlife crisis, you can skate the 24 hours all by yourself. Below is my very wordy story for the long ass event.

24-Hour Inline Montreal Race Report

Wow... What do you say after skating for 24 hours? Well, first off I want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to our AWESOME support team! Andrea, Maria, Renee, and Dawn -- YOU ROCK! In fact, we need to create a whole new verb that adequately describes how much you rock. And another BIG THANKS to Brian Shicoff for organizing everything, and to Lawrence for really making me earn that silver medal, and to Bryan McKenney for rounding out our team of Americans determined to fulfill Brian's dream of sweeping the podium... (lol)

Skatey-Mark Takes Second in Montreal 24-Hour Skate Race

The word from Dave W last night on the phone was that Mark placed second overall in the Solo division of the 24-Hour skate race in Montréal QC at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Way to go Mark! I can't wait to hear how many miles he logged! Congratulations to the other participants, especially Brian S. Please let us know your stats and experiences, guys!

Skating 104 miles then 125 miles on the American Tobacco Trail, Durham NC

Well it's my last chance to tell a story before we get the news from Montréal about the 24-hour skate race and see how Mark, Brian, Marcia and others did. My story is a much less dramatic one, but kind of fun anyway.

24-hour Montreal race -- taking insanity to a whole new level!

Okay...  everyone knows I'm a distance junkie, and just a glutton for punishment in general...  Last year I did my first 100-mile skate and had intended to challenge myself by skating 100 miles on back-to-back days.  My "double century weekend" never happened unfortunately, but I have been pondering my next challenge for some time now.

Défi 2006 Report Montréal Québec Inline Skate Race

OK - here it is...  Perhaps my longest writeup ever... 

Le Défi de L'Île de Montréal -- October 21, 2006

PRE RACE

Time to kick some French-Canadian butt...

Okay... I kid, I kid... :)

 

Seriously though... "Le Defi" is coming up and I'm seriously thinking about going up there for it, as I've mentioned before. It's a 128km (~79 mile) tour around the island. (You did know Montreal was an island, right?) It is timed, so some choose to see how fast they can do it. But it is a very scenic route, and would be very cool to just skate at a leisurely pace too. If you finish in under 12 hours, you get a bronze medal. Under 10 hours - silver. Under 8 hours - gold. (Course record is just over 5 hours...)
