HOW TO USE A TOILET ON SKATES
Do you remove your skates before using the facilities on your local bike path? Did you know you can use "toilet positions" to practice your skating? Here is a priceless cartoon and two interesting articles.

POWERSLIDE ENTERS THE SPEED BOOT MARKET
I met Powerslide founder Matthias Knoll of Germany at 2002 Speed Worlds in Belgium, and I was surprised to learn Powerslide now has their own line of speed boots and they are developing a large line of frames and other racing products.

ERIK JAN SPIJKERMAN - SEXIEST SKATER ALIVE?
12 exciting photos of Erik Jan Spijkerman, member of the Dutch National Inline Speed Skating Team. The pictures were taken by professional sports photographer Ewoud Broeksma

U.S. FEDERATION ANNOUNCES SPEED CHANGES
Grand Veterans category added - 500 meter is back - amateur cards coming - National dates have changed - residency for 2003 worlds - banked track clinic.

AN INVITATION TO SKATE IN SOUTH AFRICA
An invitation from the Roller Sports Federation of South Africa to attend the 5th International Inline Speed Skating Championships in Pretoria Feb 5-9.

AN INVITATION TO SKATE IN DISNEY WORLD
Skate through Disney World in Florida at the First International Disney World Inline Skating Marathon in March of 2003. I wonder how many skaters will have Mickey Mouse ears glued to their helmets?

IISA SUPPORTS INLINE SKATING MARATHONS
The Event Committee of the International Inline Skating Association (IISA) is going full speed ahead with a plan for the Association and its participating members to support inline marathons in 2003.

PHOTOS OF THE LONG BEACH MARATHON
Photos of 150 skaters crossing the finish line at the 2002 Long Beach Marathon in Southern California.

AUTHOR INTERVIEWING LONG BEACH SKATERS
"Babes on Blades" author Suzan Davis wants to interview Long Beach Marathon participants, especially people who were skating in their very first marathon.

A Note from Kathie

IF YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR ME...
If you are waiting for me to respond to your email, or for me to post some news or an article you sent me, please accept my apology if I have not done it yet. This has been an incredibly busy month! I know I missed quite a few messages because they were buried under hundreds of other messages in my inbox. Please feel free to resend any message I have not replied to. I really do want to (and try to) answer all of my email.

MY ARTICLE IN FASST MAGAZINE - RUSSIA!
I'm waiting with great anticipation for the next issue of Fitness and Speed Skating Times because they are publishing an article I wrote about skating in Russia, with many photos and lots of information. FaSST always does such a beautiful job of laying out my articles, and I can't wait to see what they have done with this one. For more information about FaSST Magazine see their Web site at
http://www.fasst.com

SKATEGRRL IS OUTGROWING SKATEGRRL
The information and photos on SkateGRRL.com are outgrowing the space I have on my server, and rather than adding more disk space I have decided to split SkateGRRL.com into three different Web sites:

SkateGRRL.com
I will keep this site going as a link directory and my personal home page. Right now SkateGRRL.com has about 2000 pages of skating links and information. I will keep the link directory pages where they are, but I will gradually move my articles, photos, and news to another Web site.

SkateLog.com
This will be the new home of the articles, news, and photo layouts I previously published on SkateGRRL.com. The two sites will be very different, because SkateGRRL will be mostly a link directory and SkateLog will be articles, announcements, news, and photos by me and guest authors who want to contribute to the site (guest authors will retain the copyright to their articles and photos and they can ask me to remove them from my site at any time)

AskAboutSkating.com
This will be the message board for SkateGRRL.com and SkateLog.com as soon as I can decide which bulletin board software to use. If you can recommend any particular package send a note to me at kathie@skategrrl.com (I can use either Unix or Windows packages). I'm thinking about MAYBE having sub-boards here for inline, quad, ice, and skateboarding.

InlineSkating.about.com
I will continue to host and edit About.com's inline skating Web site as long as they want me to do it. Articles on this site will tend to be product-related and short "what you need to know" pieces, because that is what About.com says their visitors want to see. You will encounter pop-up ads at About.com but even so, this site gets a huge number of page views per day. Note that this site does not belong to me, it belongs to About.com. I only work for them as a private contractor. I appreciate having this job because it pays me enough to travel to skating events all over the world (contrary to a common rumor, I am definitely not independently wealthy...)

Any questions or comments? Send them to kathie@skategrrl.com
