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!

One Week Turned Into Three

No I didn't get inured or quit skating.

What happened?  Summer.  Since my last post we had family visiting on two occasions, then flew back to Oshkosh WI for our annual trip to the fly in convention.  Now we're home, but headed out camping for a few days in our trailer with the dog.  Meanwhile we are in the beginning stages of building a new house.

It's all fun, so I can't complain..... I will save that for when I get back on the ice next Monday and can't do anything, feel sore and frustrated!

Fun on the lake

  1. Wow, when you say fly you really mean fly! Camping with a plane looks like so much fun :)

  2. Hi Diane,

    Skating today (Sunday)? I may head up to Cheney and skate. It would be fun to see another (adult!) figure skater there :-)


  3. Nice photos, don't worry about the first day back, you'll be so rested and relaxed that ytou will have way more energy than you think.
