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!

Some Renegade Freestyle Today

After my dance lesson this morning - I decided to go rogue and skate a bit of freestyle today.
I miss it but wont return until I shed some of this weight.

  1. You need to not be so hard on your fS moves and Elements. It was very hard coming back the first time it is going to be no different this time. Maybe even harder. Age is such an evil trick for those who love this sport. I am soor to be 57 and have just started Dance to work on getting my out side edges back after Summer Knee surgery. Keep at it as long as it still makes you feel good inside!
