Starting in Athens, Georgia, participants skate through beautiful country roads and quiet suburbia before navigating city streets and triumphantly crossing the finish line in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward Skate Park. The course is challenging and requires experienced road skating ability, courage and stamina. Skaters who may not be ready for the whole 87 miles may opt for the 38-mile event, which also starts in Athens, or the 49-mile event, which starts near Dacula, GA. Inline and quad skaters are welcome and anyone from 8 to 80 years old may enter.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Roadskater.net inline skaters have done A2A as many as 18 times in a row.

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!

I blew it some days and let the weather forecast stop me. But I got in 4 sessions of 50, 66, 33 and 67 miles. More info later (maybe!), but for now, let's just say my wheels are flatter and maybe my feet too. I've put the miles into my newest skates and have worked around some challenges there. I'm not dropping pounds like I want too, because I seem attracted to carbs right now (as always)! There are some more stories to tell about people we met and random thoughts.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/67-more-miles-makes-211-4-last-11-days-silver-comet-trail-can-we-smooth-out-concrete-bit" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/67-more-miles-makes-211-4-last-11-days-silver-comet-trail-can-we-smooth-out-concrete-bit#comments Roadskater.net 2012 2000s United States of America (USA) 2010s Coot's Lake Station GA Dallas GA Earth Georgia (GA) Hiram GA inline skating Mableton GA outdoot rail trails North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1443 Sun, 15 Jul 2012 20:41:55 +0000 roadskater 1443 at http://roadskater.net 33 Soaked Sometimes Slippery Silvery Comet Miles and Briefly Looking Back on 66 Miles and a Trick for Skate Boots Too Big http://roadskater.net/33-soaked-sometimes-slippery-silvery-comet-miles-and-briefly-looking-back-66-miles-and-trick-skate-boots-too-big <p><em>[Last Friday, eebee and I skated 66 miles (some might say more but that's close enough) on the Silver Comet Trail, from Mile 0 at Mableton near Nickajack Elementary, to Coot's Lake Station (where the old station was, where now there is a convenience store). Since we had done 50 two days earlier, there was not very much new to recount, or I had few braincells for recounting. We saw some wild turkeys, the tunnel was not muddy or wet, Dallas is getting our love for that much better water fountain at the back of the restroom building (I think there's a similar fountain at the back of the building in Hiram too, but I have not been up to the shelter in Hiram this year. If you make it to Brushy Mountain Tunnel, you might consider pushing on 3 or so more miles down to the store at Coot's Lake. Yes, you have to come back up, but it's likely you'll be refreshed.
