Inline to Olympic Ice Speed Skates Again! Florida's Brittany Bowe Follows the Example of NC Speed Skater Heather Richardson

Here's a well-done if brief local piece of writing from Florida, where they are mighty proud of their inline champion, Brittany Bowe. If I have it right, she was at the US Cup when I was there, skating for Verducci (she, not me, ha!)**. I may even have some photos of her skating with the Verducci gals, not sure (might have a photo of Heather Richardson from a US10K too.. 

Thus, like many inliners, Bowe must have figured out there's not much glory in being at the top of a non-Olympic sport, and why not give it a go. (I think she may have made an attempt at cycling some time back too.) Anyway, she and High Point's Heather Richardson had raced plenty, and seeing Richardson's success surely was a factor, and likely made it easier to make the decision and follow an example for the switch over to indoor long track ice speed skating. 

This could be a powerful duo for the USA and they could be ambassadors for inline everywhere.

Primal or Paleo Eating: Becoming a Keto-Adapted, Fat-Burning Endurance Athlete

I just read an interesting article on Mark's Daily Apple, about a couple who used to follow the 'healthy grains' carbo- and sugar-loading philosophy in their endurance training lives. Like many of us, they trained for many hours for triathlons, marathons and bike events, using grains and sugars to fuel these workouts, and like many of us, found they couldn't get out of the cycle of burning huge amounts of calories and eating them all again later, and then some. They found they not only didn't lose weight during the training season, but put it on 'effortlessly' during the off season.

Inline Skating Pre-Teens Call to Help Sixty-Year-Old Snoozer Driving on Drugs: Now Who Do You Want to Keep Off the Streets?

Here's one reason to keep street skaters on the road where they belong if they have the skills (just like cyclists who have the skills, and automobilists, too). That way, they can keep an eye on the neighborhood and watch out for the safety of adults who can't control themselves and go out driving around after first buying, then using drugs.
