    I Love The Thrill Of Ice Skating

    I took it up when I was 25 and thanks be to God I had a fantastic teacher who insisted that I learned all the skills.  I have never been particularly athletic and was thrilled to be doing jumps, spins and ballet.  There is nothing like the serenity of skating solo when you have...

    I Broke a Rib...

    I went ice-skating every friday in Altrincham (Manchester, UK) before they pulled it down a few years ago. Great fun. Now I sometimes go to Blackburn, but it's not the same. I used to go mental on my skates; bust a rib when I was being a prat. Couldn't sleep on my left side for...

    Searching For Musik

    I do ice skating, since I was 14 years old, but I didn't really learned something, till I was 18 or so. I had to chance my ice-skating-club a few month ago and now I have to build a new freestyle program for my next contest(I'm not really good, so I just skate on small contests...

    I Figure Skated

    I started taking lessons at a local skating rink while living on Cape Cod. I was in 4rd grade at the time. I skated until I was in 6th grade in Connecticut. I wish I hadn't stopped taking lessons. I wish I had just gotten over my fear of the jumps. I had gotten stuck and couldn...

    I Feel So Free, Gliding Over the Ice

    I'm learning how to do some fancy (some basic) skating movements. It's really fun. I'm in a club. I love ice skating. It's exercise and just feels so nice to be on the ice, gliding over it. I feel so free and like myself. ^^ I like watching figure skating on tv, too. It's...

    Most of my days. Even in the Summer!

    Gotta Love Skating

    Growing up in Canada I used to go all the time on the weekends, for free.  Ever since I got stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA, I've been going about 3 times a week now.  What can I say, it's a great stress reliever.

    Not Just A Sport Or Hobby..

    Figure skating is my dream. I first learned how to ice skate when my uncle brought me to an ice rink. He was my first ice skating "coach". Then my mom enrolled me for a private lesson, I was really excited and nervous at the same time because I'll be with a coach and not my uncle...

    I didn’t get the chance to do it this year.

    Neither did I get the opportunity for it the last few years, but it has always been something I loved doing. I don’t really care much for indoor skating though. The appealing part of ice skating for me is, besides the exercise itself, when there’s hardly any crowd on the ice...

    Always Loved To Skate

    On the Norwegian side of my family, most of us started skating about the time you could walk. In Noway, our family lived on a fjord deep inland, near a glacier. The only way across the fjord, from their farm to a small settlement was across the ice. They skated across and...

    Long Lost Friend

    I loved skating more than anything else in the world when I was a kid and took skating lessons for awhile. I really took to it quickly too. Later on when I wasn't ice skating anymore I was roller skating and then inline skating. A lot of time had passed since I'd done any...
