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!

Ten Fox Lesson

Today I had an early morning (for me) lesson as an early makeup lesson - due to company coming to visit.  Sacrifices must be made!  My new coach who I really adore is Sue Burdick.  If anyone reading this blog skates in Arizona - she is available for coaching at Gilbert AZ Ice.  We are just clicking and I am really enjoying her method of coaching.  She is encouraging and explains things to me in a way that sinks in (most of the time!)

I didn’t think I was going to try to learn the Ten Fox but she thinks it’s something I can do.  Practice time is my problem.  There will be a test session in March sometime so I need to get more ice time if that is going to happen.
