A tiny photo from the BIG Roller Ski World Record Attempt!. Click on the image for a BIG photo, here are a few close-ups, and likely many more to come, from MuscianOnSkis.ca.

The official number of rollerskiers was 257. A World Record for now. Watch the video...


Lost Vest

Did anyone find a mens large black Craft vest by mistake on Sat Oct 2nd? I left it on the grass by the parking lot where the photos were being taken for the World Record Roller Ski (North Loop. When I returned after the skiing past the lot it was gone, likely picked up by mistake. It contains a car key, Gat ski pass and an iPod.

Found - Many Thanks, P.M.



Pink Panther in Gatineau Park

On Friday, October 1st, I went out for a one hour jog and stride on ridge road as part of my preparation for this year's ski season. Since I recently turned 60, age category for racing is on my side, and the notion of entering a few races with a real chance of placing well has me motivated.

To my surprise, a mountain biker dressed in a full pink panter suit from head to toe - tail and all- came by me not once but twice, and growled (playfully).

Has anyone else spotted exotic animals on Ridge road....I am curious to know what this was all about...anyone know???
