I had nice view of all the "slapping" and "elbowing" happening up front. It didn't bother me at all with all the silly games being played, and I must say I was rather amused by that......

It going on literally in front, and behind me, that made it annoying I think

All the games slowed us down too, we left a couple minutes out there easy.

I still had fun doing it and skating w/everyone, just gotta beat them girls next time

Who's coming to Road Rash?

If it wasn't for the narrow course and my sickness, I would have tempted to make a daring breakaway sometime in the middle of the race. If a couple of us can maintain the pace you're pulling for at least a few miles we should be able to drop some of the girls.......

Kudos to Jessica and Birgit for all their hard work in making Squiggy such a success! I so admire you both. Congrats to all the participants; it looked like a really great time was had by all. I've just landed a new job in the LA area, so hopefully in the near future I'll be able to consider attending some of these races and finally have the opportunity to meet a few fellow SLF members in person.

HEY THAT'S JUST GREAT, TAWNI. JUST GIVE US THE ADDRESS, YOUR MOVE IN DATE, AND WHERE YOU HIDE THE KEY. I'M SURE WE'D ALL LOVE A PLACE TO SET UP CAMP IN L.A.

OH, MOST ANY EUROPEAN BITTER WILL DO, I CAN'T STAND MICR0-BEERS, THANKS VERY MUCH FOR ASKING!

From Sunday, March 15th in Tampa. Check out the very cool video. Gustavo did a wonderful job putting this together from his video helpers who filmed while he was skating.
