Yikes! I Can't Stop.

I loved to roller skate when I was younger.  I am of the skate key era, and can remember rolling back and forth on the sidewalk for hours.  When rollerblades seemed like an exciting thing to do, I started blading.  But my balance wasn't very good, and I could never quite get the idea of putting my heel down to stop.  So, I started with four wheel skates, shoes skates with outside wheels, and its so much easier putting my tow forward to stop, plus I am taking lessons at the local roller rink.  I hope to get fast and good enough to make it a regular workout, although I am still terrified of going down hills.
