I’m dreaming of a white Mercedes-Benz Pleasure-Way…
One of my Google Alerts for “Feld Entertainment” pointed me to this article, “Disney princesses skate into Johnstown,” featuring Russian figure skater, Ekaterina “Kate” Larionova, who talked about skating as “her calling, because when she took time off from her sport, she realized how unhappy she was.”
I can relate.
“I didn’t feel accomplished, so that’s why I returned to skating,” she said.
The time I took off from racing – about 10 years between my bachelor’s and master’s degrees – was not necessarily “unhappy.” Of course, I found out that I could in fact live without riding.
But who wants to?
