SSW Fund-Raising Drive Day 4- 1000 Hours A Year

Based on my calculations, I can spend 3 hours each day working on SSW. Mind you they are not usually consecutive hours.

That makes an impressive 1000 hours a year spent maintaining SSW.

That’s the equivalent of half of a full time 8-hour per day job, complete with 2 weeks vacation.

That’s a lot of labour, work, and love that goes into maintaining this website. Don’t get me wrong; I DO have my priorities straight and I make sure the important things in my life are adressed, including (not in any particular order);

  • Sleep
  • Family
  • Nutrition
  • Training
  • Work
  • House work
  • Coaching
  • Helping organize events & supporting skating
  • Watching movies & reading
  • Playing music

If you’d like to help out and support the many hours that are put into SSW, don’t be shy; click here (or on the image) to help out- thanks 🙂

Interview- Alexis Contin- From Team Rollerblade

Team Rollerblade shared an interview with Alexis Contin; Interview with Alexis Contin: Rollerblade, the best team for me!

My role is to make sure that the guy who wears the same uniform as me crosses the line first. Of course, I enjoy winning races. But knowing that, when you help somebody to win a race, it is also a really great feeling. To me, being in a team is about giving and taking: I mean, sometimes the team works for you, and that is great, and sometimes you have to work for the team, because that day you were not the one who could make the difference. And that is also great! I really think that untill you realize that, you can not be a great skater.
