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.


It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Coffee Club with Randy Clark

Nothing makes me happier than to see 10 grown adults on a sheet of ice enjoying themselves and trying to improve their skills.  We had a great session today with 10 skaters including a newcomer who is just learning to skate and 3 skaters from Coeur d’ alene who came to skate with us AFTER skating their early morning session at their rink.

Randy Clark was our guest coach.  He is my new personal coach as well and while I have to say it’s always an adjustment getting used to each other, new styles and techniques, etc.  I think I will make some progress if I stick to it.
