Figure Skating as an Adult (Blog)
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:35:01 PM »
Hello!

For anyone interested in reading about the experiences and journey of getting back into figure skating as an adult, I'm currently running and writing a blog pertaining to this. I've never actually done a blog before but I felt like sharing my experiences with others would be enjoyable. I haven't made it to the ice yet but I have written several entries that are leading up to my first lessons. Any input, comments or advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

New blog post is up! This one was a bit delayed due to busyness IRL but hopefully I can get them in more frequently once again!
