Clara Hughes- Limitless Potential

Clara Hughes‘ most recent journal entry is Limitless Potential

They’re both going to compete in their first Olympics. They have a hunger for excellence that I also feel as I prepare for my fifth. Patrick mentioned people telling him how “the first Olympics are for experience” and “not to worry about results”. He told me didn’t know if there will ever be another. I remember my first Olympics, and how certain people tried to impose those very limitations on me. It only solidified the intense motivation to be better than I ever had. I knew I had the capability to be the best. Why else would I train so much? For experience? I shared these thoughts with Patrick, hoping my words outweighed the other advice.

Someone Slap Cor (Road Rash Chronicles)

Road Rash Chronicles‘ latest is Somebody Slap Me.

Even with the calories burned over 10 hours of tennis, 4 hours of cycling and 6+ hours of skating, I am equally  ashamed with the 3 HUGE chinese dinners, 1 full bag of chips, 4 chocolate bars, 2 egg McMuffins (no egg) and 8 Venti Starbucks coffees.  I am estimating well over 25,000 calories eaten.

Ed’s Sk8toronto Website- Disappointed With The City Of Toronto

The latest entry from Ed’s Sk8toronto Website was shared on June 26th

I am really disappointed with the City of Toronto. When I started inline skating in 1998 there were several places in the city that were good places to skate. Notable among these places was Sunnybrook Park and vicinity. For years this park was my favourite place to skate but the paths and roadway have deteriorated to the point where it is not worth going there any more.

The whole thing makes me question whether there is much point to my website. People don’t really need my help to find out that the best places to skate are beside the lake and the days of discovering a hidden gem in one of the ravines seem to be over for good.
