When People think Skaters Have a Screw Loose

The Skate Tech saves a skater 
from a broken ankle!!

That screwdriver you carry in your bag,
you're supposed to use it occasionally

Skating Moms #1: The Concerned Skating Mom

The skating moms at my rink are very nice. The ones I used to know well have moved on and there's a new group.

So Saturday there was Freestyle right before Public. I had my skates on and I strolled into the rink area just to check the temperature and see who was doing what. (You know we all do that.)

I glanced over at the ice monitor who I didn't know and gave her a smile. She was looking at me with an expression of concern.

 "Oh, I'm not going on." I explained, "I was just checking out the ice."

She laughed lightly in return. "I wondered, because there's only 10 minutes left to freestyle. I thought it would be a little short."

"And I thought you thought I was a newbie in rental skates," I joked back. We were getting along nicely.

"Oh, no," she was serious now,"Our rink doesn't have skates as nice as those."

Well, THANK YOU anonymous skating mom.

I hope all the skating moms at your rinks are as nice as the ones at mine.

Three Months off ice; Three hours on!

First 15 minutes on ice

 But after that I'm cool.

And actually, after all the one legged squats in elevators my coach says my spins are must better and faster. My skills are still there, buy wow are my legs tired.

Anyway, I'm back on the ice!
