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!

Post Traumatic Turkey Syndrome
I had hoped to get some pre & post turkey skating in - but underestimated the popularity of a FREE OUTDOOR RINK in downtown Chicago!
At the time I got there the ice was so chewed up it felt like I was skating on pebbles. I went LIVE on Facebook for a lap or two. Later, my hubby and sis-in-law came down to the rink and took some video. It was all I could do to keep from slicing off mittenless fingers from fallen skaters - much less try to do any real skating.
I presume skating at Rockefeller Center is the same.. but probably not free. (I don't really know)
