I thought I would surprise my husband with a blog post dedicated to him and his beloved Inline skates. He completed his last race of the season over the weekend in Duluth, Minnesota. It's a full 26 mile marathon along scenic lake Superior. His skates are pretty cool. And look at the difference in the wheel size on the bottom picture. He upgraded his skates this season from a boot that held 5 small wheels to one that holds 4 large wheels. His finishing time of 1 hour and 20 minutes didn't change much from last year. But he finished 100 out of around 2,600 skaters. (not including the pro's) Last year he finished at 120th. I've been cheering him on for 8 years in Duluth. And I've taken lots of blurry pictures. So now, when he climbs the final hill in a pace line of his peers, I just watch and enjoy. I'm sure there will be many more races in his future. After all, he's barely broken in his new beauties!
