So over Labor Day weekend I competed at the Peach Classic Competition in Atlanta, Georgia. And I was so inspired and amazed at the adult skaters who were not going to let a number (their age) keep them from doing something they love--ice skate. I hope that as I age, I continue to have the desire and drive to keep skating, just like the adult competitors you'll see in the intro of the video below.
You're never too old. It's never too late. Keep reaching for your dreams whatever they may be.
Below is my performance from the Masters Junior/Senior Freestyle event. I didn't have any competition, which I was ok with. I just wanted to practice performing my program so I can hopefully get it ready to test Junior Free. And yes, you'll see that a lot of the jumps necessary to pass a Junior Free are missing--but I did what I could do with the hip injury that I had at the time. And I'm pleased with what I put out. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed performing it.
Many thanks to Elite Media Productions for filming the event and posting it on the SVP Vimeo Page.
