“After leaving Pittsburgh and Columbus in the spring to travel, and sustaining a concussion in the fall that left me with no sense of smell or taste, I didn’t get to skate a lot this year. Blading has brought me a lot of joy and great friends over the years, as well as given me the opportunity to see places I never would have been otherwise. While a serious injury makes you rethink a lot of things, I’ll always be appreciative of what rollerblading has given me.” – Stefan Brandow
