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?

Candy Wong- Weekends No More

Candy Wong’s most recent entry is Weekends No More

So that was it for my 2009 race season weekend training. Starting Labour Day, I’ll be racing somewhere every weekend and the next time I return to my local training haunt (i.e. Hamilton Beaches Trail), it will be autumn when the leaves start to fall. I sure feel a little sad knowing that 2009 race season will come to close very soon.

Liam McFarlane- Back

Liam McFarlane’s latest entry is Back

Oh well, I’m back now. Officially! I guess, because “back” for me means back to skating. It was the first time in a week that I’ve done anything even remotely active… and it felt great… I’ve been holding back mainly to rest my ankle and also because of my mouth. I got an implant in and a bone graft done on last Thursday.

Roger Olson- Automobile Drivers/ Distrations From Driving

It was Wednesday late afternoon about 5:30 PM and I was going to do a slow warm up skate to meet up with our WNSW(Wed. Night Skate Workout) group at 6 PM.

I Skated from my home to the green belt bike path in Lion Country(1 block from our home) and on to the intersection of University and Yale (approx. 1 mile). Pushed walk button, waited for walk light. Red light for traffic, east bound toward 405 on University, a car in curb lane had stopped. I skated slowly in walk lane passing in front of stopped car, as I passed it and entered the 2nd lane I heard screeching tires from the left. Next moment I could remember, I was laying on my back looking up at blue sky, paramedics and a police officer.
