"Alki" Native American for "bye 'n' bye" or more formally "hope for the future". I guess the last applies to the whomping I've been giving myself these past six months. There are some really good trails in the Seattle-Tacoma area but I and mvirtue are on the other side of Puget Sound. Not a lot of skating venues apart from local parks and my one little piece of pavement attatched to what's essentially a nature trail. Our one training "killer" is the McDevelopment: an upscale (500K - 1M $) planned housing area built around a golf course. Good pavement and golfcart wide shoulders. Measured off with Mark's Garmin @ 5.6mi. It's all hills and grades and really pulls it out of me. I wish we'd gotten some elevation changes when we were checking it. I haven't been able to do more than five laps straight on it yet and those are 30min+ laps. I guess it did something for me as my long distance times improved dramatically.
