My name is Andrew, and I live and work in Chicago, Illinois. I recently picked up Inline skating again after a 3 year hiatus. Before that, I was a fitness skater, after investing in a pair of K2 Radical 90 skates in 2006. I started as a recreation skater in my early teens, eventually transitioned to aggressive skating, which I stuck with for my teens and early 20’s.
However, the prospect of getting older and having a family of my own suggested prudence was the better route, and so I found myself as a recreation skater once again in 2006. Since picking my skates up again in 2011, the need for that adrenaline rush came back, and I have moved from being a pure recreational skater to focusing on Inline speed skating.
The Inline Paceline serves to log my transition and growth as a speed skater, though I am sure my other interests in skating will filter in and out on occasion.
