We've been missing from this ghost town for weeks as we completed the 90 miles in 2 days at Tour to Tanglewood, the 87 miles in 1 day at Athens to Atlanta (7h58m) and did the preparations for volunteers to put on the 102-21 mile Carolina Century ride and roll for MS, while we skated as unintentional sweep much of the day. Now it is on to wrapping up lost and found and website items and participant surveys and such. Plus resting off 102 miles (10h23m) on roadskates.</p><p>Meanwhile to amuse me I looked back at my unpublished Tour to Tanglewood 2011 photos and I got 6 photos (don't worry I just aim my arrm in that direrction and crop later) during the dog incident. 4 of him passing us, and 2 blank ones probably taken during the shoulder roll or after...they are just black except for some light around the edges like a near death experience (NDE).&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/loose-dogs-and-driving-cars-motorcycling-cycling-and-roadskating-dont-mix-so-great" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/loose-dogs-and-driving-cars-motorcycling-cycling-and-roadskating-dont-mix-so-great#comments Roadskater.net 2011 2000s United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) 2010s charity events Davidson County NC dogs Earth falling falls open road roadcycling roadskating Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) outdoors photos North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1401 Sun, 23 Oct 2011 21:07:38 +0000 roadskater 1401 at http://roadskater.net Periodization and the Offseason - Or An Attempt Not To Lose It All http://roadskater.net/periodization-and-offseason-or-attempt-not-lose-it-all <p>Lose all what, exactly?
