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!

Freestyle Friday @ Gilbert AZ Ice

 Normally I am playing golf on Fridays but not today.  I woke up thinking ... I wonder how my skating friends at Gilbert Ice are?   When I got there I quickly got motivated to try a little freestyle as there were so many adults skating their hearts out.  My friend Jose Hinojos was there from Tuscon who I haven’t seen in ages as well as my friend Melissa.  I spent much of the session talking and not much skating .. but sometimes that’s fun too.

My freestyle has taken a back seat and boy were those spins hard to find centers for.  I spared you the outtakes of the the misses.
