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.
It has now been 8 years since I got back on the ice. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1600 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Our coaches were happy and excited for us, people cheered and clapped and I somehow managed to smile from start to finish.
Now it's back to the drawing board for a Silver technical program for competition in March and April.
We must learn a lot before then: an Axel lift and/or Lutz lift, a Death Spiral and/or a Pivot Spiral and we need to strengthen our fundamentals.
I'm feeling excited and looking forward to the hard work ahead.
Thank you coaches: Chris Anders and Berkley Villard.
And of course Hank Landis......I couldn't do it without you!!

Still skating 4-5 days a week. Working on mostly pairs with Hank but I got on the ice at 6:00 am today to ice dance with my other partner (how lucky am I?) Mike.
We are still on the Dutch Waltz -
As you can see we are not on the tempo of the music, but it was fun to get out there and give it a try today .... 6:00 is BRUTAL for me!
