It rained the day of the skate and I decided I was ill prepared to attempt it especially in those conditions. This isn’t a priority for me now – probably will not happen in 2008 either.

So, the people who put this on graciosly changed my entry to 2007 because I had an conflict in 2006. The didn’t need to do that but did anyway. Nice. Unfortunately, I’m not 30 pounds heavier – eeeek, and WAY out of shape. Somehow in my mind I still think I’m going to do this. Hmmmm, Tough or Insane? Maybe both?
I just registered for St Paul Inline Marathon in Aug.
I’m comitted now – go me!
There’s still snow/ice all over and will be for a while. Will probably not skate train until May. I’ve got all summer – shouldn’t be a problem.
found marathonskating.com. Also found dates for three possible events. St Paul Aug 20, 2006, Northshore Sept 17, and Big Granite in Ashland June 18. Have to pick then plan a training schedule.
Route of the Grandma’s Marathon in MN. There is a rollerblade version on a different weekend. I don’t think my knees/ankles could take running a marathon but I do think I could train for a Rollerblade. I’ll have to get it on my calendar and set a schedule for training.
