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.

Trying On New Boots

Finally home from the Windy City. First thing on my list of "to do" after saying hello to my Beagle Buddy was to try on my new boots.

I can't get over how wide and large my new boots look. Obviously my feet needed a lot more room than my old boots provided.



After wearing them about 45 minutes I re-laced them and wore them another hour or so.  My coach recommended someone in town to have my blades mounted and sharpened.   I was able to drop the boots and blades off today and tomorrow I will get to try them out on the ice
