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.

Summer Madness

We have both been going in opposite directions for the last three weeks. We finally got a chance to skate today.  I rolled my ankle playing golf on July 2, so I am skating  very cautiously..  balking at a lot of my jumps.  Wait - who am I trying to kid? I've been balking at my jumps for quite a while -- ankle or no ankle!!!!

 We had a great time skating today and some things worked miraculously well considering ....

 We also had the privilege of meeting another adult skater.. I believe her name is Miriam (sp?) from Tri-Cities...  an absolutely amazing skater still doing double jumps  after a 25 year hiatus!  She was working on her standard track Junior moves in the field … Wow !
