As you may remember, faithful followers, I fell a couple of months ago doing a forward edge pull and tapped my head.
Coaches I know gave me little lectures about head protection.
Anyway, I now wear an Ice Halo. A "minion yellow" Ice Halo. When I wear that Ice Halo, you can spot me across the rink, and I skate like a king.
A few weeks after I started wearing the 'minion yellow crown of protection' , a skater in Basic Skills came up to me and said I inspired her to make her own. She had taken a bike helmet apart and put the foam in a cute knit hat. Okay, I was impressed by that.
Then yesterday, I ran into couple I know and the husband said, "You inspired us, we went out and bought these Crasche helmets."
I'd rather inspire them with my skating.
But, I guess I'll take what I can get!
