Oh yeah. I was slowly making zig-zagging headway with various elimination diets regarding my various allergies and autoimmune issues. Also, there was some recent talk behind the scenes about skaters and their training and/or weight loss goals for the upcoming training season. All of the above, plus a couple of 20 minute flat skating sessions this week that left me gasping for oxygen, has prompted me to try my own 30 Day healthy eating Challenge.

Anybody still skating or training?</p><p>I finally made it out to Greensboro Country Park for the first skating after Carolina Century. So that means I've not skated much since Athens to Atlanta, as the weeks between the two events are mostly about getting the CC ready. How would all that non-skating affect me?&nbsp;</p><p>Well, first off, my heart rate when I put the strap on was 130! Now, I've seen in the 120s for an event where I'm in a hurry or have a lot of responsibility, lots of people in town, all that. Most of the time it's under 100 getting started at Country Park.&nbsp;</p><p>I got there without much time before dark, so I set minor goals.

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..&nbsp;</p><p>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.&nbsp;</p><p>This could be a powerful duo for the USA and they could be ambassadors for inline everywhere.&nbsp;</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Ocala</span>, <span class="region">Florida</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="29.187199">29° 11' 13.9164" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-82.140092">82° 8' 24.3312" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=29.187199+-82.140092+%28%2C+Ocala%2C+FL%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Ocala%2C+FL&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
