Have you participated in any skating events, or are you planning on doing so?

I've never participated in any skating events and I would be open to it. The only race I've ever been in, was the Grapenuts race in Phoenix AZ and it was on a bike. 25 miles

Where are you comfortable skating (parking lots, greenways, roads, etc.)?

When I lived in Olympia WA I skated on our tennis court (I would do spins and skate backwards) and we had a trail through the city that I lived close enough to skate on. It was a converted RR track. Beautiful!!! I miss it a lot!!!! My neighborhood

Do you need any help with basic skills such as braking or turning?

I think I have that covered, but if you have any tips that would help that would be great. Never too old to learn new tricks, I say. LOL

What kind of skates do you have (recreational, racing, custom, etc.) or do you need help getting skates?

I would like someone to take a look at what I have and tell me if I should get some different wheels for my skates. They're K2's about 15 yrs old. I'll probably get some new inserts for my arch too. Other than that I think they'll work for a while.

How long have you been skating, or are you just getting started (or thinking about it)?

I've been skating since I was very little. I changed to in-line skates about 15 years ago. Honestly I've been skating twice in the last 4 years though. I'm sure I can pick it back up quickly.


I would like to keep my legs in shape during the off season. Doing something I enjoy outdoors with friends is ideal. I ski and snowboard. I'm not familiar with the Raleigh area enough to know where to skate.
