So this morning I did something I haven't done in months. I strapped on my skates. And I did something I haven't done ever. I skated outside of my house!

It was just back and forth in a parking lot. And I was damn rusty at first. I'm also still learning, so even once I cleaned that rust off I was still pathetic.

But I didn't fall.

And I'm slowly getting better.

That is too cool! I've been wanting to get brave enough to skate myself.

It took me finding my new courage to get my sorry ass out there in the real world instead of back and forth in my basement. And even then, I did it in the dark when no one could see me. But hey, go for it! It burns, but it's worth it.

OMG...funny that I should happen on to your blog right about now. I'm getting ready to invest in some skates myself. I'm positive I will be rusty but I hope I'm able to follow your example and not fall. I don't care if I look like the biggest idiot....I just don't wanna fall. Pathetic??? Well you tried didn't you? That's the first step...and you WILL get better. I'm sure of it

My incentive to not fall was that I wore no pads. Then it's like don't fall! DON'T FALL! DON'T FALL!!! Whew!

And thanks for the encouragement. I'm sure you'll do okay too. The rust only takes a few moments to scrape off. And then it's smoooooth sail ... whoops! Ouch.
