Me skating school figures
Practicing before a competition in Auburn, WA. My coach, Barb, is standing in the background. I am pretty sure this was right at the beginning of the day and I was still a bit wobbly. I think this was the Regional Invitational, April 2001, in which I came in 1st in JO1b Inline Singles, and 4th or 5th in Esquire Figures. Not my best event, that's for sure. (Then again, Esquire was a tough level. Lots of skaters who had skated much higher levels than I ever had, when they were younger.) I usually skated JO2d figures that year as well, but I don't have a record of competing in that level at this event.
