Congratulations, that is wonderful!
Manleywoman, that is so cool! Congratulations!
Saw you skate, and you were great! Doug Wilson made a point of coming over to cheer you on!
HOTT stuff! Whee!
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
A wonderful accomplishment.
What a thrill!
Use Yah Blinkah!
Hi everyone. I just saw this thread (haven't been on FSU in a while). Thank so much for the cheers! It really was a thrill. The girl I beat by 0.2 was someone I've never beaten ever. I've been trying for a long time, and I was so glad I had a perfect skate, with Level 4/3/2 spins respectively. She out-jumped me, but I won on spins and PCS. With the year I've had (getting divorced, adjusting to new job, and having precious little time to train . . . just 2 or 3 hours a week) it was a minor miracle it all came together. Hopefully next year I'll have more time to build up the stamina to bring back in the 2toe and 2loop. I just couldn't do it this year.
Here is the video on YouTube.
Thanks again everyone.
In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
And serious, serious brownie points from me for picking such a lovely version of Clair de Lune. I am particularly picky about which versions of Clair de Lune I will listen to, and that one was tremedously good.
