Rollerblading Equipment and Info

I see all kinds of equipment and gear, or lack of gear being worn while rollerblading.  Over the years my most significant falls have been twice when I was standing almost still, on a slope, and while distracted.  I am quite sure that on either of those occasions, had I not been wearing a helmet, I would no longer be rollerblading.

Roller blading for exercise leaves me with about 95 minutes to think of nothing but the asphalt in front of me every couple of days. As I depart on my routine, I turn on the same music tracks every time I go out, which means that I start to anticipate the bumps and turns synchronized to the music. My stride falls into the familiar rhythm with the music and as the summer progresses, what seemed to be a challenge on the first week out, now feels comfortable.
