Hank Galbraith- Inliner On Ice

You can follow Hank Galbraith’s transtition from roller speed skating to long track speed skating- Inliner On Ice.

On August 8th of this year, I left Greensboro, NC to move out to Salt Lake City, UT; exactly 2074 miles from my parent’s house to my new home. I have skated on inlines since 1999, and though there have been plenty of tough times, as of right now, my heart still lies with inlines. The one thing that ice does have that inlines doesn’t is an Olympic stature. That is my ultimate goal, though it may be a long shot. Since I was a kid, I have always wanted to skate in the Olympics.

We’re BAAAACK!

ill just stick to skatin, while you sit there hatin,
debatin on how to write a rap thats not so quite degradin

i know you tried real hard, regardless it still smelt,
you might wanna look for a rhyme inside your utility belt

Here we come with a novel of episodes,
the novice, the pros, and evens the chodes.

skating on products that don’t even work,
from slipping to wobblers to crap that even chirps,

We bust our hineys and put in laps,
traveling the country from state to state on dis here map.

We’re all about survival in this sport they call skatin,
floor to floor, bumpin and grindin, for some it about hatin

Watch for deception and who can make ya,
better yet choose your friends wisely cuz they can break ya….

Keith Carroll- Skating To Become Better

This year I am a senior man. I will not try to lie to anyone and tell you that I can skate with Joey because time in and time out he has destroyed me as long as we have been here, but that has not stopped me from skating with him. This is where I am getting with this: in my case, every time I skate with someone better then me I am chasing them. I am chasing and chasing and chasing. If they are going 80% i’m going to go 100% if that’s what I have to do to keep up. If I go 80% when everyone else does, but do not stay with them because I am set on 80% what good does that do me? When am I getting better?
