Woman Running a Thousand Miles on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in North Carolina at 52-Years of Age...In 21 Days

There's even more to this one! This runner can't navigate and even remember everything short term after surgery to address seizures! This is inspiring to say the least. Check out the article with details and see the tracker link here...

Not Better, Just Faster: Fast Olympic Speed Skater and Slow Runner on Teaching Children and Ourselves about Competition

Here's a brief interview with one of Canada's favorite speed skating champions. I thought the comments on competition were interesting. I miss seeing all those skaters who were so much faster than me at Athens to Atlanta. They'd still be faster than me, most of them, but not perhaps it is not worth being there to them if not faster than almost everyone there? In any case, I'd love to see more skaters at A2A, especially those on the way up or down. I think a lower entry fee would help. In any case, back to the subject at hand.... 

 

Here's a bit of what I found interesting:

Grand Teton National Park Path Allows Inline Skating, Seeks Trail Volunteer Ambassadors: Inline Skaters Here's Your Chance!

This is just a brief note to point out another place on Department of Interior land where inline skating is specifically encouraged, unlike out beautiful Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.

But what a beautiful place to travel to for inline skating! Click the photo for another article on this subject...

Quick Guide to Working Out at the Kearns, Utah Olympic Speed Skating Oval (and more) Near Salt Lake CIty

Lots of us dream of touring our way to a speed skating oval, and especially the one where the Olympic Speed Skaters train, ice or not. It turns out it's nice and cool in there, and there are running as well as skating facilities. Rather than repeat it all, I'll say check out this guide. But if you want speed skating, you need to wait until mid-July, when the 400m oval gets ice. For now, it's dryland exercises.

Seems Like Inline Skating Aligns the Electrons in My Brain: Study Shows Benefits of Aerobic Exercise

I often tell people who ask (and some who don't) that inline skating for one to several hours aligns my brain. I don't mean anything specific really, but things go better with eating, sleeping, doing, and thinking if I've been skating lately. Sometimes one day of four to six hours of not particularly difficult or fast skating can really improve the look of the world. Well that's me. What do the mice think? Or rather, what do scientists who study mice think.

Check out the article below if my snips are not making sense. Or go run on a mouse wheel for awhile and try again! Seriously the article is done well. 

First, in a recent study, they wanted to

figure out how important physical activity is for generating or growing new neurons in the hippocampus. 

To see whether exercise or other factors in the mouse's environment were boosting neurogenesis they designed a study with four groups:

Self-Refereed Team Sport: USA Ultimate Frisbee Flying Disc Games and Tournaments

Much like the term "Rollerblading" is not encouraged or accepted among skaters, or Rollerblade itself for that matter, what used to be called Ultimate Frisbee is now simply known as Ultimate. 

My son has found his equivalent to skating, in Ultimate. That is, it's a sport where he can run himself ragged and not notice all the exercise he's getting because he's so into it. He is as hooked on Ultimate as I am on skating.

New York City Marathon Articles of Note for Logistics, Medical, Volunteer, Event Planning Purposes

I didn't watch the NYC marathon this year, and the coverage was delayed and compressed I believe anyway on NBC (though for those with Universal Sports I believe it was live over the air free digital television...in Atlanta, for example).
