On The Edge... Again
Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.
It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

That is the longest break I have had since I got back on the ice at age 52 (I’m now 58).
First impressions: RINKS ARE COLD
Second impression: MY FEET HURT
Third impression: THIS FEELS WEIRD AND UNNATURAL
But ... the hour went well. I vowed not to fall and I tried everything I felt I could handle for day 1.
I feel good about it.

Heather does an amazing job of getting everyone doing something .. together .. in 30 minutes! And the catch-up pinwheel at the end was a 1st for me!
What? Ok... happy to get off moves for 5 minutes. I need to be softer in the skating knee and close my hips ... )(*^&*&% damn hips ... a problem everywhere!

Randy Clark was our guest coach. He is my new personal coach as well and while I have to say it’s always an adjustment getting used to each other, new styles and techniques, etc. I think I will make some progress if I stick to it.
