It’s official - tomorrow I turn 60. It marks 10 years since returning to figure skating. And really 3 years since I stopped working toward a test or competition. Tomorrow I’ll wake up as a 60 year old with a pair of ice skates - out of shape again and out of touch with everything surrounding the rules and requirements for my age/skill classification. There have been some big changes in adult figure skating since I stopped skating regularly.
I have a few obligations and travel plans between now and mid November, which is when I hope to return to the ice to see how forgiving it is. Free skating, dance, pairs, testing ??? Who knows. Till then good bye from me in my 50’s. It was fun.
