What's your Inline-Skating, Cycling or Running Training Style: Periodization, Marathon-Training, or Haphazard?

With this year's outdoor inline training season ahead, I've been wondering how I should best spend the precious time available to me and reap the best skate training rewards later in the year.

What We Need... More Young Skaters Having Fun

One of the happy moments of the last week was when I was skating at Country Park and a little girl about of five years or so gleefully exclaiimed to her parents, "Look, Mom, he's ice skating!" I of course interpreted this to mean that I looked like an Olympic Ice Speedskater of awesomeness. (Please don't say there's no way.) I'm convinced kids love inline skating. How can we get them outdoors and skating with us so they can be the future of roadskating? Let's think how and do some of that.

Some Humor and Some Fodder on the French, Razors, Rollerblades, More

If you want to read some funny comments and real observation (including why we need to be careful and caring when on skates), check out this little piece observing life in heaven, or hell, depending whether you love the little wheels. We need not be a nuisance of course, and plenty of other wheeled and non-wheeled folk are, but remember, we are a minority and thus often must meet a higher standard, or at least it helps if we do! As for the scooters (which I notice in parks parents are less likely to make kids wear a helmet when using!)....

Legally Blind Hockey Player Plans Inline Skate from Toronto to Vancouver for Charity in 2009

They told Mark DeMontis he'd never play hockey again. They were wrong. Now he's planning to skate across most of Canada this summer, despite being legally blind, all for charity, to help others like him enjoy skating and life.

DeMontis was a triple-A hockey player in Toronto with hopes of an NCAA scholarship when he was diagnosed with Leber's optic neuropathy, an eye disease that left him legally blind at age 17.
