Some of you probably know how much I'm obsessed with figure skating. I figure skate every day for a couple of hours, get back home, do some school and then do some off ice training. So anyway, Saturday was the first figure skating competition of the season! Jessica, my older sister and I competed in this event. You can go check out her blog at http://writeskatedream-jmckendry.blogspot.com/. It's really cool! OK, back to the competition. This was the first time I would be competing with my double jumps in it! I was so nervous! My grandparent's also came to watch so that made it even more scary! So, I was competing against five girls, including myself. To get to the point I ended up getting third place out of five. This was also the first time I had ever fallen in competition.. It actually wasn't as bad as I had pictured it, but mostly because a lot of my skating friends were cheering me on. The next big competition that is coming up is Regionals. Yeah, really big! I've got three weeks to practice before it and I've got to admit that I'm already a little nervous!!
P.S. I will post a video of me skating in my competition as soon as I can! (It'll be today if I can get it on here!)
