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.

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!

Getting my "Norma Desmond" on

Today was our second day of practice this week, a milestone considering I have been gone so much lately. Sadly I am in a lot of pain while I'm skating and  I feel they will be much improvement after this mystery ailment goes away.

I did not label any elements on my video and if you use your imagination… Imagine there are no cuts or breaks in the video…  I just slapped on this music for fun and I have to say- I kind of like it. I can see all types of costuming possibilities. I'll have to show it to Hank and see what he thinks even though we had just decided that we were going to skate to music from the movie Pearl Harbor .  I'm ready for my close-up Mr. DeMille !!
