I might be amongst the slowest skaters on Team Rainbo, but I am the oldest woman. I’ve had my shares of wins which I am very happy of. I seem to take chances. As proof, I have had many injuries: stitches, hemotomas, years of road rash and a fractured pelvis. I have held the best time record at the North Shore Inline Marathon in Duluth for 4 years. To me this is huge! My skating career started on a long track ice rink a number of years ago. I switched to inline when new ice skates didn’t arrive on time and I wanted to skate, so I just went out side and here I am. My goal is to get a standing ovation on the podium in Duluth when I’m 80!
