Following on my somewhat off-the-topic post (off-topic of outdoor skating, canals, and endurance sports) about the Olympics being awarded to Rio de Janeiro over Chicago, I'm following with a further off-topic post urging everyone to vote for 11-time Olympic medalist Natalie Coughlin on Dancing with the Stars. That's in part because she's a genuine person and also because my girlfriend has recently worked with her in a public relations capacity and she found Natalie a joy to work with. So vote for Natalie!

This blog weighs in on topics such as long-distance skating, the Illinois canals, cycling, and a variety of related (and occasionally not-so-related) topics. I'd like to correspond with others interested in skating the Hennepin and I&M canals.
