Barometric and Digital Elevation Model (DEM) Correction with Cycling Running Skating Global Positioning System (GPS) Data

Congrats to all who are spending plenty of time exercising! Kudos if you do that AND spend lots of time thinking about this while exercising or not. Thinking about exercising is part of actually going to exercise. And any mind game that gets me out exercising is a mind game I like. Also, thinking about scientific and mathematical issues keeps brains exercised along with the rest of the body. If you feel elevation data is irrelevant to your training, you won't want to waste your time reading this article. If reviewing your data informs you and inspires you, read on to see if you agree.

Without Excuses, Like Bacterial Meningitis, Hearing Loss, Brain Damage, Cerebral Palsy, She RIdes for Charity!

As I circumparambulate (redundant on purpose, like my excusification day after day through the now passing daylight losing time), others get on with it. My little exercise objections so numerable or down to just one or even none, I console myself with not wanting to burn out over a long season to come. That is OK. I must be doing what I need to do for me overall (or I can hope).

But with myself as a foil, it is inspiring to see a young lady shy of ten years, and to read of her love of wheeled travel such as that I feel, and to see her blossom through the struggles. Please take a moment to read about Lauren, and to see the photos of her in her patriotic colors, repaying generosity in the past with interest, through the spark of happy striving. You go girl.

Shani Davis Wins Silver and Gold in Speed Skating World Championships; Tyler Farrar leads Tirreno-Adriatico Cycling Stage Race

 

Just some quick notes here to remind that the World Single Distance Championships are under way in speed skating (they seem to like to have several kinds of world championships, ha!), and the Tirreno-Adriatico cycling race started yesterday with a team time trial. I followed the T2A (as we roadskaters might dub it) in past years and found it very entertaining, through territory reminiscent of the mountains of NC as I recall.

Look for the 2011 Carolina Century on 10/22/11. A proven EPIC event. More details to come......most certainly. :-) http://carolinacentury.com

[Ed: Thanks, MikeB, for putting this out there early! From here on out this is roadskater speaking.]

With a bike to skate ratio of 15 to 1 or so...This is a bicycle event designed by roadskater to be compatible with slower or heavier cyclists, fast cyclists looking for a rolling but fast course with few challenging turns and no switchbacks, and experienced roadskaters. The Carolina Century even has a sherpa/domestique who will ride in support of a first-time centurion (or a pack of them). Thanks to John Connor for being the Carolina Century guide. We'll be rolling along near the back to make sure that the rest stops stay open and well stocked.
