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.


It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Real Time Stroking Lesson

Yesterday I posted my practice with a high speed version of my stroking and practice.  By request... here is most of the skating in the lesson in real time.  Obviously there are minutes of standing around talking about it ... which I didn't include.

  1. Love it!

    Ah, the inevitable standing around. Every time we go to open skate we are adamant to not stand around--but somehow DH has all these photos of us standing around, lol! I suppose the only time it doesn't happen is when Ariana and her cousin are on the ice for lessons surrounded by coaches and Learn to Skate helpers... plus ice parents watching, lol.
