Kerrigan in Training

Who of you did not want to be Nancy Kerrigan when you were 8 years old?  (Or whatever your respective age was when she was popular).  If you are a female, or a gay male, don’t lie, you know what I am talking about. 🙂 

Today brought me back to that time in my life, while skating blissfully at a rink with a couple of friends. 

A couple fast runs around the rink and….. 

Well, you get the gist.  I would put up a picture of myself as well…but that would really be a little redundant….

Ok. Just because you asked. 

I told you, redundant…

What’s that?  Oh, why am I not floating gracefully across the ice?  Well, I had just come down from a triple axle, it’s not my fault my friend’s camera wasn’t fast enough. :-/ 

I also left time for the fans…

I know, talented AND nice.  It’s tough being me.  :=) 

Ok, maybe those are my friends that I went skating with.  And maybe I am not Nancy Kerrigan.  A girl can dream.

However, these two do look pretty close here…

Perfect 10’s:)

What can I say, I have talented and nice friends.  I am a lucky girl. 

Ok, I guess I should make a Goodwill mention.  In the midst of all this skating fun and fantasy, Goodwill played a key part in keeping my hands warm!  Unfortunately, I do not at the moment have a picture where they make an appearance.

But lucky for you, I can describe them!  They are grey wool gloves.

Wow, that wasn’t hard. 

 I guess I can go further.  They were new from Target, because, in case you didn’t know, Goodwill will buy Target’s unsold inventory by the truckload, and resell it at their stores.  So a lot of times, you can get great Target merchandise and clothing at a great discount. 

In this case, it was a pair of Merona wool gloves for 1.99.  And they made my ice skating a MUCH more pleasant experience.  I know this because I experienced both, and skating with gloves was much more enjoyable.  This was due to the fact that my hands did not freeze.  I could therefore skate to my heart’s content.

And I did.

Now go strap on a pair of skates and let out your inner Kerrigan!!

Q:  What sports star did you want to be growing up?  Anyone’s dream come true?
