Skating to Nistelrode
Sunday, 12-March-2017 - Veghel/Nistelrode - It was warm and sunny. A perfect day for the first skate of the year. I used the same setup as last year: Rollerblade Tempest-C 100 mm, two-deg shims and terry cloth socks rolled down at the top. My ankles were weak and pronated. That caused rubbing between the outside of the boot and my outside tendons above the ankles. Even though these skates were only one year old, I needed to look for replacements with better support. I was good for 19 km--not bad for the first time out. pics (51)gps-tracked route
I was born in 1949. We lived on a corner of my grandpa's farm in Amelith, a church community about six miles from Bay City, Michigan, USA.
