Back in the early '90's I I learned inline skating shortly before moving to the NW Chicago 'burbs.
Once there, I found Busse Woods, and decided the 4 mile loop was more fun with skates than on bike,
so I did a lot in inline skating.
There was a small group of *really* good skaters, including 4 guys who often skated together drafting
each other. Also in the group was an attractive blonde with legs like a downhill skier who used to
thoroughly humiliate me by passing me with ease, when I was at full speed.
One day I happened to pick up a copy of a free Chicago-area sports magazine. When I spotted her
picture in it, I discovered she was the top-rated female inline racer in the Chicago area.
Then I didn't feel so bad.
