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.
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!

Ok, I'm Starting To Get Nervous….
Went to EWU today. Nice warm rink to work out my frustrations. I don't want to make excuses, but the thing that is holding me back are my aches and pains. My jumps are really suffering from my R knee feeling like it's on it's last threads …. (2 cartilage surgeries in the 1979 & 1980) and my back … which is really my SI joint with bone spurs … all work against me when it comes to skating properly.
After this season's competitions are over, I plan to pay a visit to the orthopedic surgeon to see if there is any hope for restoration.
