It's Raining Men!

I forced myself to squeeze in an hour to skate yesterday.  It's been over a month since my blades have touched the ice and it's been several months since I have been skating with any regularity and/or seriousness.

We have been building a house and we are in the final stages and so my time has been otherwise occupied.  Very exciting, but my skating has suffered.

Next month I'm planning a trip to Scottsdale, AZ to be a jealous spectator at the USFSA Adult Championships.  I really wanted to participate as a skater this year, but I didn't have enough discipline to keep going after my July competition, so this year I will attend with envy and anticipation of next years Championships to be held in Hyannis, MA.

Here's some uncut video from my short skating session yesterday.  If you skate ... you know this is something you don't see very often:

Three Men and a Lady !!


  1. You look fantastic for not skating for a month! I am jealous of your gorgeous spread eagle - hopefully I can do one like that someday.

  2. Spread Eagles are funny. Either you can or your can't .. it's a hip/turnout thing. I really wish I could go in the other direction so I could jump out of one or jump and go into one... but for some reason it feels different going R to L than L to R. Go FIGURE !!


Adult Coffee Club Popurri

 Skated my first Coffee Club .. and possibly my last of the summer.  There is only 1 more before they give up for the summer due to ice main...
