About

I’m an avid adult figure skater who started taking lessons at the age of 21. It’s been many years since and I am still skating! I started my very first skating blog at the age of 23 to record all of my skating lessons. As any skater will know, it’s hard to remember every single thing your coach tells you! It’s also very expensive to pay for lessons. The blog was my way of remembering all the small nuances of each move and making the most of each lesson.

This is actually my third blog as my first two were erased. Thankfully I was able to import all of my blog posts from all those years and it is still very much centered around my coaching lessons and the trials and tribulations that can only come with being an adult skater, injuries included : ). Peppered throughout is some commentary on the figure skating world at large.

My hope is that this blog on skating will help other adults like me become better skaters. I don’t pretend to know all about skating and my tips and how-to’s are only my interpretation of what my coaches have instructed me to do, so please take them with a grain of salt 😉

Please enjoy my skating journey and feel free to drop me a line or two about your own skating journey.

Happy Skating!

    Started skating at ~49 years of age. Broke my ankle in April of 2009; sat on my foot doing a forward mohawk. I can now execute a forward mohawk, but never without trpidation. My coach took one out of my program because I would glide so long prior that I had to skip the last few elements of the program when the music ended. I know many who’ve broken bones and didn’t get back on the ice; but many more who have. In all the cases I’m aware of, though, it wasn’t a second break. All the best! Thank you for your posts.
