New Tricks

Who says that an old dog (or three old dogs, in our case) can’t learn new tricks? One of our skating friends, who is currently in college, posted a video of her and her friends doing a fun new element on the ice.

This was a fun thing to try on land and not as scary as I thought it was going to be. Since I’m not as scared of being lifted, I got to be the skater that was being carried around.

My friends and I got braver and even managed to move this to the ice:

After that seemed to work out OK, we even tried to move away from the walls and add some more speed (!!). I think it turned out! It was fun, and we hope to be able to do this in a program at some point. Don’t worry, we are not quitting our day jobs. Ha!

    I can imagine that as a synchro move with more skaters!
