Mein Fuhrer! I can skate!

I've been fooling myself for the last 15 years that I am incapable of skating. I don't know why. The last time I tried was around grade 5 or so and I likely fell on my ass a few too many times.

The thing is.. I had convinced myself that the balance, coordination and abilities of a 10 year old trying to skate still applied to me today. Why is that? I don't think that about other aspects of my abilities. Strange.

Anyway, while on the Google ski trip last week (yes we had a ski trip! woo!) I decided to try out skating again. I'm so glad I did. I *can* skate gosh darn it! Even without holding onto the rink wall! Wow! It was quite the rush I must say. Proving oneself wrong. Pushing aside incorrect assumptions. Cool.

I also went downhill skiing... first time in about 10 years I guess. Cool thing I discovered about skiing is it is like riding a bike. You don't forget how to do it. Half an hour after putting on my skis I was flying down the hills weaving from side to side. Fun!
