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!

The Headless Skater ...
Nameless and faceless ... but you can see I need to go on a diet!
Worked on many things off camera .. that went much better than my spinning. Did quite a few good sized Flips and landed several Lutz jumps - minus the usual fear.. maybe it's getting easier.
I'll need some good lesson time to fix this backspin and back camel and flying camel thing. It's going nowhere.
Good news: My twangy ankle pain didn't rear it's ugly head today.
Coming up this week: Choreographer lesson on Thursday to start working on Silver FS program!
Friday I will be in the Bay Area and I am looking forward to reuniting with my childhood skating coach, Tony Howard - who is 83 years old and still actively coaching at Oakland Ice. I signed up for a freestyle session on Friday morning ... sure hope the ice isn't loaded with elite skaters!
