On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.

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.

Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Skaters For The Cure

    I'm #2 from the left about 5 rows up.  I am wearing sunglasses!

    This was the 2011 "Survivors" photo from the race.

This year I want to do something different and try to raise more money.
Instead of walking as an individual, I created a TEAM called PINK ICE (Skaters for the Cure).  I hope to rally as many skaters from the area as possible to come walk with me. (or run if you like) It's a lot of fun and quite easy.  All those pink balloons are released at the start of the race.  Also, it's a great warm up for Bloomsday if you are a runner.


What:   Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure
Where: Spokane Washington
When:  Sunday April 22, 2012
