    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
