I thought if I held onto a hockey stick I would be more stable. That is not the case at all. Hockey is so difficult. I have no idea how you can skate and hit a puck on ice at the same time.
The figure skates have have a lot more support than typical figure skates because as Alex would say, I'm an ankle bender. All things considered I did a great job skating. I didn't fall once. I actually got a little speed. I can turn left and right. Skating backwards is another story.
Where there is an ice rink there is another rink for just hockey. And that is where you will find Alex. It was pretty neat flying home from Ohio. As we got closer to landing you could see people on all of the ice rinks across the city.
