    Started When I Was 8 Years Old.

    I would skate until the music stopped and I loved it!  Then when I was 17 I broke my ankle spinning.  OUCH!  Still love it even if though some guy slammed me into the floor once.  Seriously he crashed into me doing about 70mph and it knocked the wind out of me...

    Rolling With the Times

    It was an old Wooden Floor, polished into "oak-ice" perfection, in the skating rink. About waist high, a guard rail was tacked around 3 of the walls for "beginners" to grasp at before loosing hope and flopping helplessly onto the hard, unforgiving floor! At...

    Been a Bit of Time

    It's been a bit of time, but in recent history Skating has been bought to my attention. Years ago (before I move to mid -Missouri) I used to skate a fair amount. The desire to try my skating legs has resurfaced . I think it would be great to give a go and fall on my bum once more...

    Responsible

    This activity was probably the reason behind the many bruises I aquired as a child. I was covered in them!! I just kept falling over or running into things such as lampposts, walls, hard to miss they are :)
