Breaking a world record

OK, I know this is a little different than the normal posts that appear on this website, but it is about a sport, just a different one…inline speed skating. A friend of mine, Danny Dannels, is attempting to break the record for the fastest transcontinental inline skate with the Guinness Book of World Records. Needless to say, this is quite a challenge for anybody to attempt, and Danny is finding out first hand just how much of a challenge this is.

Along with myself, 5 other members of my team went down to support him as he passed I35 between Waco and Austin. 4 of us even skated with him for approximately 10 miles. Of course, in comparison to the 1500+ miles he has already put in since the beginning of the year, this was nothing.

For all of those who are interested in knowing about Danny’s journey, he is keeping his blog on MySpace updated. It is definitely worth checking out if you are interested.
