    A NOTE FROM KATHIE
    Don't forget to connect to my new "Skate Log" every day to find out what's new in the world of skating.
  • Current Skate Log (Today's News)

    I make a new entry in that file every day when I am not traveling, and I'm trying to figure out how I can keep it going even when I'm skating in different parts of the world. I want to be able to make entries like... "Hello from Kathie in Kenya - Guess Who Just Won the Nairobi Marathon?" My Goal is to eventually have the ability to instantly share news with you, from anywhere in the world!
