Day 26: Getting it … kind of

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There are two thoughts that come to mind when I see pictures of myself: The first is, I need to lose some damn weight. Second, it’s nice to see what I look like when I’m trying to skate.

What I’ve found out is that I don’t lack the physical ability to do the tricks, just the confidence to commit to them. As I make my way down the pavement and crouch down to make the jump to plant my skates on a ledge, I always flinch and instead place my skates, like a dainty princess, and glide along the edge.

Believe me, its look dumber than it sounds.

I’m still making headway. Though I haven’t been out to practice as much, every time I do I feel a little more accomplished. But, I still have a long way to go.

Later days,
