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!

Da Agony of Da Feet - New Boots
My husband says ... and you do this WHY?
With all these issues, stock boots are not an option for me. I love my Harlick's, but this time I am wondering if something went wrong in the tracing or construction.
The boots look huge, but they are the same boot. They start with the size 8 1/2 C model and build from there. Tracing around a very wide ball over the mountainous bunions on both feet and on the outside edge of the ball there are little bunions called "tailor" bunions.
I am showing you these diagrams because my feet are too ugly to post on my blog!
I have skated 4 times in my new boots and put about 5 hours in them. My feet are KILLING me.
I'm working with Harlick now to find the problem and a solution.
Meanwhile my skating suffers!
