Why as an adult your first competition is like losing your virginity

    A fellow adult skating friend just did her first competition. I wasn't able to be there but asked how it was. She sent me an email reply which to sum up:

    Incredibly nervous, excited, hearts a racing
    Having trouble stroking
    Spent the next day crying
    Got back on the ice the next night and it wasn't too bad
    Started planning for the next program

    Now if that isn't the same as losing your virginity I don't know what is! All messy, kind of embarrassing and you are wondering what mistakes you are making. Then you kind of can’t wait to do it again.

    Awesome! Never thought of it like that but so true!!!!

    I used to often think before stepping on the ice "why do I do this?". But as you said you can't wait to get out there again and again.

    Don't forget the "having a drink afterward" part :)

    Lots of people on my synchro team like to have a cigarette after competing. ;)

    There is a photo on someone's Facebook page of a few of them having shots.

    All I can say is, I hope to goodness that when I lose my virginity I don't start hyperventilating and turning red like a tomato. :lol:

    But if you're totally in love with it, it feels right, even the first time.
