Would like to do this year in skating: Enter the � marathon next year in Texas Road Rash. It�ll be my 1st time to compete in a skating event.

Favorite skating gadget/tool: My best friend fixes my skates.

Helpful advice to other skaters/ Beginners: Inline skating is fun, but definitely different than skating on quads. Get a higher inline skate boot so you�ll have more ankle support to begin building up your strength and endurance. I�ll save my money for the Bont�s when I�ve got more experience.
