We often hear our inline skaters saying they find skating to be more “rhythmic”, “fulfilling”, or even “spiritual” than other forms of exercise. There is certainly something about the side-to-side movement of the continual gliding of inline skating that is aesthetically pleasing.
Dr. John Kitchin faced his own reality that he didn’t like life as a doctor and that what he did like was inline skating. So he quit his medical practice, moved to San Diego, and spends his days skating down the strand.
This 16:40 minute video is not short but if you are an inline skater or interested in learning, it is well worth your time. I recommend either watching it in the evening when you have time to relax or (if you are not a Zephyr employee!) watching it at work when you feel stressed out and overwhelmed. Thanks to Zephyr alumnus Ray Sutton for pointing this out to us. Photo and video courtesy of New York Times.
