Skate For MS
Local speed skaters Ignacio Gonzalez, Teddie Matteson, Sherrell
Steinhauer skated along with recreational skaters Jim Hoyt, Jessica Sund, Abigail Lambert
and me. I'm sure there were others too. We all had fun. It was a beautiful day, sunny and
Saturday was at Pikes Market. We then went to Green Lake and met Jessica, Abigail and
Mauro. It was an abnormally warm weekend for Seattle and the crowds were large which made
for more entertainment.
6:00 am came way too early on Sunday, however we crawled out of the hotel and found our
way to Redmond to start the Skate. Everyone did very well and I want to congratulate
Abigail and Jessica for completing the Skate in just a little over Two and a half hours on
their first time skating in this kind of event. It was twenty five miles and I don't think
any of the recreational skaters listed above did any training. We all talked to many
people from many places. That always makes it interesting, there always seems to be a good
group from Canada
Mauro Costa from Seattle, he skated on Quads with inline skate wheels instead of roller skate wheels.
