From the very moment I put skates on for the first time, I knew I was going to fall in love with the ice. I didn’t want to take my skates off! At first it became a pastime, then it became my sport. I loved it. I even started figure skating and trained to begin competitions. But when training because too serious and started encroaching on my social life, I decided it wasn’t for me. I stopped enjoying my time on the ice and didn’t want my favourite sport to turn into a chore.
Now, I’m looking forward to introducing ice skating to my son. He’s 5 now, and it’s high time he put on his first pair of skates! With the pandemic, we weren’t able to get out on the ice these past couple of years, but fingers crossed that this is the year!
So, what’s your favourite pastime? Is it still the same as when you were a kid?
