Florida's Brittany Bowe Follows the Example of NC Speed Skater Heather Richardson http://roadskater.net/inline-olympic-ice-speed-skates-again-floridas-brittany-bowe-follows-example-nc-speed-skater-heather-richardson <p>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..&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!

It turns out it's nice and cool in there, and there are running as well as skating facilities. Rather than repeat it all, I'll say check out this guide. But if you want speed skating, you need to wait until mid-July, when the 400m oval gets ice. For now, it's dryland exercises.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://news.google.com/news/url?sa=t&amp;fd=R&amp;usg=AFQjCNFs-YO9bjvyiC6yv4U-1eQcuCA6jw&amp;url=http://www.cityweekly.net/utah/article-15828-kearns-olympic-oval.html">Kearns' Olympic Oval - Salt Lake City Weekly</a> -</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">The Olympic Oval</span> <div class="street-address"> 5662 South Cougar Lane </div> <span class="locality">Kearns</span>, <span class="region">Utah</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="40.647872">40° 38' 52.3392" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-112.008715">112° 0' 31.374" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=40.647872+-112.008715+%285662+South+Cougar+Lane%2C+Kearns%2C+UT%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=5662+South+Cougar+Lane&amp;csz=Kearns%2C+UT&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
