Stuff you need to be a speedskater, 101
Or...what I found in my skating bag yesterday. Unfortunately there aren't any rocket boosters I can strap to my skates! (from left to right): skinsuits & Nike dri-fit, deodorant, speedskates of course, two pairs of gloves, extra laces, towels to dry skates after practice, two pairs of ankle protectors to prevent from cutting ankles during practice, Oakley sport glasses, a can of Progresso beef pot roast soup (sometimes you just need to grab food on the go, haha), band-aids for when your feet become raw in your boots, Usana AM vitamin packets, Perform Better ankle bands (great for warming up), a Powergel, and...a Sharpie?!
