On the Ice

Published in: Daily Photo

I even look short on ice skates, go figure.

Took this yesterday at Union Square in San Francisco just before I landed a triple axel. Totally kidding! I can skate fast and not fall, and that’s about it. I’ve never gotten around to learning how to brake. I usually just crash into the closest wall (or person) at full speed. Secretly, I kind of enjoy body checking things/people, and part of me wonders if I missed my calling as a hockey player…

    I’m the same way with skating and (not) braking!
    This photo makes me want to find an outdoor rink and try to teach myself how to do a hockey-stop.
    Happy New Year, Karen!

    You don’t look short! You are super proportional (which is really the point) and you look just great!

  5. Marian says:

    That looks like so much fun! …and you look great, Karen!

    That’s my problem too, I can’t brake. And I still remember when I fell on my back (and head!) when I was about 4.

    I really wish I could skate, it always looks like so much fun! But I just lack any sense of balance and grace, I think I may be channeling the pope the way I always manage to land on all fours like a complete nutter…

    Short or not, you look like you’re having a great time and that’s most important! You look great!
