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.

If it catches the enormous spark kapow importance of a pair of skates, even though it&#39;s a passing mention, yeah! Thanks to Chloe Tse for a few nice minutes of reading. It&#39;s a different world from mine, and that&#39;s why I liked listening in at the next table (via the web) for a moment. </p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/nice-writing-rollerblades-emblem" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/nice-writing-rollerblades-emblem#comments 2007 articles Canada (CAN) Ontario (ON) Toronto ON writing http://roadskater.net/crss/node/407 Wed, 14 Feb 2007 02:22:30 +0000 roadskater 407 at http://roadskater.net Rideau Canal Skateway Ottawa Canada to Open Soon http://roadskater.net/rideau-canal-skateway-ottawa-canada-open-soon <p>Climate change or not, those crazywonderful Canadians have been trying to get the canal ready for skating at least by their upcoming Winterlude festival on February 2.

Please note that there&#39;s an Ottawa Inline Skating Festival very soon (Sep 3, on Canada&#39;s Labour Day, the same as USA&#39;s Labor Day). It sounds like tons of fun and I would seriously love to go there. The US10K is the same day. Such good opportunities on the same day! (I&#39;m severely unready for a 10K, were I ever, but this one is point-to-point and not laps so I&#39;m likely to finish; laps are just an easy way to quit early as far as I am concerned.) Of course the NY100K is forthwith as well...this coming weekend! Oh boy another place I&#39;d love to be. Time=1/Money! Ha! Ahh, but rules make sonnets, and choices make a life! </p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/running-ottawa-race-weekend-drops-line-skating" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/running-ottawa-race-weekend-drops-line-skating#comments 2007 Canada (CAN) closed road Ontario (ON) Ottawa ON outdoor inline speed racing running skating http://roadskater.net/crss/node/211 Wed, 23 Aug 2006 05:46:43 +0000 roadskater 211 at http://roadskater.net Ottawa Inline Skating Festival - September 3, 2006 http://roadskater.net/ottawa-inline-skating-festival-september-3-2006 <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2006-09-03T18:20:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 2006.09.03 1:20 pm </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2006-09-03T22:30:00Z"><label>End: </label> 2006.09.03 5:30 pm </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>Canada/Eastern </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2006-09-03T18:20:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 2006.09.03 1:20 pm </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2006-09-03T22:30:00Z"><label>End: </label> 2006.09.03 5:30 pm </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>Canada/Eastern </div> </div> <font size="2"><p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Palatino Linotype" size="2"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &#39;Palatino Linotype&#39;">Hello Skaters!</span></font></p><p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Palatino Linotype" size="2"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &#39;Palatino Linotype&#39;">Join us for the 2nd annual Ottawa Inline Skating Festival in </span></font><font face="Palatino Linotype" size="2"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &#39;Palatino Linotype&#39;">Canada</span></font><font face="Palatino Linotype" size="2"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &#39;Palatino Linotype&#39;">&#39;s capital!</span></font></p></font><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/ottawa-inline-skating-festival-september-3-2006" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/ottawa-inline-skating-festival-september-3-2006#comments 2006 inline skating Ontario (ON) http://roadskater.net/crss/node/123 Fri, 23 Jun 2006 18:38:47 +0000 Andrea 123 at http://roadskater.net
