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.

Exhibition Skate ... NOT

I got up today and put on a skirt and tights to go skate 1/2 a free style session then participate in our club exhibitions where we can run a program with nobody on the ice.  I felt I needed to get the jitters out.  Turns out I showed up too late to get on the list.  I didn't want to wait an hour to see if they could squeeze me in since I have family visiting.  So I just skated 1/2 the session and worked on the the things in my program that are giving me trouble.. the Camel Sit Spin and my footwork and ending pose.
