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 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!

Loving Ice Cafe

I’m really enjoying my new rinks offering of “Ice Cafe” - Adult only session.  It’s a quiet session - un intimidating for me while I try to get my feet back under me.  They allow us to skate freestyle (or hockey as you can see), play our own music over the iPod or Rink fobs ... all for $10 for 90 minutes.

Today I was working on basics - my knee is not happy when I try to leave the ice.  I need to get some weight off and build up some pain tolerance in my R knee.
