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!

My Pair Skating Debut
Got to the rink today on a public session to get reacquainted with the ice after 7 days and I was out there getting my legs back under me. My skating friend Hank was there. He is also a competitive adult skater at the Silver level.
Toward the end of the session he offered to show me a few PAIRS moves. I have never done pairs in my life. As a child skater I always wanted to, but I was too chunky! I still am .. but adult skaters at our age rarely do the lifts unless they have been doing them a long time.
I just wanted to know what it felt like to try and synchronize ... it was SO MUCH FUN. I really loved it. I wish he was available to skate pairs with .. but alas, he already has a partner.
Anyway, it was great fun! Thanks Hank!
