We are just 2 days away from the start of the Apostle Island Inine Marathon. Team SAFE will have 10 skaters in attendance. This is a fast course that could easily become a PR course and I encourage everyone to make this event. The location could not be more beautiful, and both the people hosting this race and all of the business on the island are top notch.
This year Team SAFE has rented a house on the island and I must say it is beautiful. In this time of vanishing races we need to support this and all inline events. We hope to see you at the start line.
With the Napa inline marathon just days away, Team SAFE Racing would like to welcome our two newest skaters, Jim Mckee and Kimon Papahadjopoulos. Both of these men have returned to our sport recently and have picked up right where they left off. Jim and Kimon also share a passion for ice speed skating which helps them tremendously in their technique.
