April 11

April 11th, 2007

I couldn’t wait to get home and try on the new blades last night! I went for a short skate (15 km) to test them out. Man, they’re fast! I’ll have to try them out a few more times to get a good feel for them, though. They have a lot more ankle support than my current skates, so they force me to use some different muscles.

 

This morning I decided to test out the new speed skates. All I can say is “Oh My God”! These things are fantastic! Rollerblade Co. make some amazing products! My typical morning route usually takes me 45-50 minutes. Today I was able to do the round trip in 35-40 minutes! Hopefully these will help me get ahead of schedule on my trip.

 

The sunrise this morning ranks in my top 5 all-time best. It was spectacular. There were a few clouds near the horizon which made the sky glow pink, orange and yellow all at the same time. And with the mountains in the foreground, it doesn’t get much better.

 

I met up with an old highschool buddy last night who works for EA Sports. He managed to convince EA to donate a few games for me to auction off to raise money for my Skate For Hope! Thanks Kevin and EA. Much appreciated.

Tonight is game 1 of the Canucks playoff run. I may be pessimistic, but I’m afraid our boy, Luongo, may be tired from a long season. Hopefully I’m wrong.
