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!

Dusting Off The Cob Webs in Arizona

New Chapter for my skating.  I’m in a new city and a new rink.  Minus my pair partner and my dance partner and without a coach as of yet.

This is it.  This is 60.  Other than a few additional discounts I may now be entitled to ... 60 sucks from a skating perspective!  Returning to skating after THIS hiatus will be long, slow and gentle.

No real goals yet except weight loss, working of flexibility and conditioning this creaky old body of mine.   Not even sure what discipline I will devote my skating to.

Today I skated at the Ice Den Chandler during Ice Cafe.  A 90 minute adult session.

Happy Thanksgiving - Grateful to be back on the ice.
