    I got a half marathon today thanks to my commute and some extra skating in the park.

Joey Brooks was out skating. He tracked 3.91 mi in 30m:58s.

Inline skates today. Regular commute. Not sure why the construction site has to WET the dirt every day. Normal street cleaner water for five blocks in the French Quarter due to narrow streets shaded by 3-story homes. #Commute

Joey Brooks was out skating. He tracked 4.02 mi in 27m:47s.

Skated to work on inlines today. Quads gave me a blister yesterday. Dry air eliminates the street cleaner water fast, so everything was dry today.

    Cool!

Joey Brooks was out skating. He tracked 11.01 mi in 1h:30m:01s.

Commute to work + commute home + laps in the park = 1/2 Marathon today! On quad skates. My feet lost their toughness with all the time off last year, so I paid for the miles with a blister. I'm still happy.

Rode a bike share past the muddy construction site to start my skate session commute today. Of course, there was no activity and the place was clean and dry. Grrrrrr. Cheated me out of 1/2 mile on skates. I hope to catch an evening session as well.

Two muddy construction sites and one street cleaner river on the way to work today. Always exciting!

Joey Brooks was out skating. He tracked 3.10 mi in 26m:34s.

Skated the quads to work for the first time ever. I used a bike share to get one mile from my house to the Greenway, then skated the last 3 miles. No falls, so the trip was a success!

    Nice option Joey. Looks like the basket was designed to fit quads. 😁

  • Joey Brooks January 07 at 15:17

    Yes Jerker, and the inline skates fit perfectly upside-down in that basket shape. When the days are short I can skate to work and hire a bike to get home after dark. I don't mind skating at night except my city has some crime I try to avoid.

Joey Brooks was out skating. He tracked 4.30 mi in 32m:38s.

First time on inline skates this year. Skated to work. Street cleaners reminded me of all the rain we had last few months.

The city just installed "No Skating" signs on every lamp post at my favorite skate spot that dries instantly after a rain and is lighted at night. Land of the "Free" indeed. When skating is outlawed, only outlaws will skate. πŸ™ˆ πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ πŸ’” 😑

    Why No skating signs?

  • Joey Brooks January 05 at 16:38

    Greta, I suppose
    because the concrete slopes down to the edge and a child might just
    shoot off into space and the parents would file a lawsuit against the
    city. If someone fell off that edge it would be really bad because there
    are concrete "steps" down there, not water to the edge. I know that if I
    mess up on my skateboard it is going into the lake, or the other way
    into traffic. Obviously, I am careful. Every entity in the USA is fearful of lawsuits when people hurt themselves on city or private property. So sad.

  • Jerker Terwisscha January 06 at 04:15

    You should put up a sign that says NO WAY! 😁

  • Joey Brooks January 06 at 07:29

    Or one that reads "No Fun!"

The wind was CRAZY out of the West. Had to take it slow going into it. Didn't have to do anything with wind to my back!

    Wet joint compound from the newest concrete stuck to my wheels. It wears off eventually. Same thing happened two years ago when a different section of concrete was new.

The lakefront is the only decent, lighted place to skate in my city after dark. And I am happy they finally got that going.

    Great ride and nice pictures Joey! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏼 You ride on that path with the branches?

  • Joey Brooks January 04 at 13:13

    Thanks Jerker. Yes, that board is my "nasty weather" skate option. 97mm Flywheels roll over just about anything. We have so many trees in my part of the world and Fall lasts about 4 months! It begins with tree fruit and acorns, then leaves, cones, and twigs from wind storms until the trees have nothing left to give. That path with the debris is a side path, very short, and never gets cleaned. The long path is about 100km and gets cleaned almost every day. Also those wheels have good grip on wet surface. My inline skates are treacherous! My quad skates work well on wet, but not so much debris. So....I use the board you see in the photos. It's my only hope!

  • Jerker Terwisscha January 04 at 13:20

    Good choice. I'm also careful with my material and change wheels and bearings in October and replacing them in March. I hope to get some skate miles this month, it's been a while. 😊

  • Joey Brooks January 04 at 13:27

    Well, it never snows here, or freezes. So almost every day is possible, only my mood to overcome and get going. Hope you get rolling soon!

    Thought I might get significant skating time during the holidays. Ha Ha. Dream on.

Joey Brooks was out skating. He tracked 4.35 mi in 36m:45s.

Never been so happy to get 4 miles done. Wind was howling! Feels like I skated 10. And I had to crawl over two chain link fences because of lazy construction workers who fail to remove it between jobs. My new skate path on the lake is 4.2 miles round trip. Completion is 2 months behind schedule due to bad weather.
