The 2nd St. Paul Inline Marathon was held on August 21, 2005.  We didn't have a chance to talk about  this marathon although we wrote an article on this event almost one year ago.  The old saying tells there is nothing too late, so we’ll post the article.

The 1st St. Paul Inline Marathon (040821) < http://www.saintpaulinlinemarathon.com/  >: Most of the course is along the Mississippi in St. Paul and finishes at Rice Park in Downtown St. Paul.  The top two pro skaters finished the marathon in around 1 hour 8 minutes.  We heard that Randy Kelly, the St. Paul mayor, and Tim Pawlenty, the Minnesota governor, participated in this competition: See also Letter 137 Twin Cities Marathon.  Believe it or not, to our best knowledge, for the first time worldwide, Minnesota started the inline marathon around eight years ago, using the same course as Grandma's Marathon < http://www.grandmasmarathon.com/ >.  This year (2004), The 9th Annual NORTHSHORE INLINE MARATHON < http://www.northshoreinline.com/info/  > ,  which drew several thousands of skaters, was held on September 18, 2004. There, the top skater finished the course in around 1 hour 2 minutes.  We hear the world record time for an inline marathon is under one hour.  People say that it is much easier to prepare for inline marathons than preparing for the ordinary running marathons.
