OK it's raining and my muscles are fine with another day off so I was checking out some ways of stopping on skates. Lots of these are not so much for speed skaters with grippy wheels and grippy asphalt, but for freestylers or hockeyites on smoother surfaces. Having said that, there are certainly those who can do these moves in speed skates.
Sign up until 11.59 PST today (tax day special, April 15th 2010) at Active.com, or print out a mail-in form to do A2A for *$50* (all distances: 38, 52, 87).
UPDATE 4/16/2010 - Active.com registration is still open through today, April 16th, because there were reports of technical problems. So you can still sign up through active for $50 today. But then that's it.

Kind of been out of the loop for a while, but am determined to get back into it. I have been procrastinating getting started me training for a triathlon that my wonderful wife signed me up for in June. I have known about this since my birthday in November, but have come up with every excuse in the book to not train. Something to watch on tv, too cold, too hot, blah blah blah...we have all heard it. Well the end comes today for me. No more excuses! This is where the challenge comes in. Post here what you did for the day as far as exercise.

Eddy's coming back to Greensboro for his legendary skating workshop! April 9-11.
Sign up now, before all the spots are taken! The announcement email is below, with all the links you need...
We managed to get Eddy Matzger to add us to his schedule again this year (thanks to Skatey-Mark for the boost). in between trips to China he'll take the 2 and a half hour journey down from Floyd, VA for a roadshow outdoor inline speedskating workshop in Greensboro NC this year!
Here is more data from the road between Volvo Trucks N.A., Greensboro, NC and Tanglewood Park, Clemmons, NC in the 2009 Tour to Tanglewood for Multiple Sclerosis. When I make elevation profiles, I like to force x and y to 0 because it helps me see how hilly the event is more accurately. You can make almost anything look hilly by setting the y-axis max/min to the elevation max/min. To make it better, I should probably plot all events on a 110-mile scale or some such (considering Carolina Century at 102 is usually the most I'd try in a day), but I don't yet really like how that looks.
