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!

Tangled blades took me down during our performance today, but in the spirit of
#WeGetUp ... I did just that and we managed to finish out the program only having to omit a pair camel spin just before the ending.
It was a.really nice program choreographed by our pairs coach Chris Anders formerly of Disney On Ice. We struggled to learn a lot of the steps, but worked hard to try and do them justice. We could have used another 1-2 weeks of practice on it, but we walked away with smiles on our faces.
Much thanks to our coach Chris and my partner Hank Landis for holding me up!

I think we can finish on time and skate more "to the music" while we can hear it overhead. We had to dodge the little ones, that slowed it down a bit.
We will head to a freestyle session tomorrow afternoon to give it a go with music.
