I’m typing this as I watch the 2019 U.S. Figure Skating Championships on NBC. Ice skating is something my mom and I watch every year, and it’s one of our favorites during the Winter Olympics.
To those with the talent to do triple lutzs and with the ability to trust someone as they lift you high up into the air, bravo. I could never imagine being able to do that, a true testament to the time, energy, and perseverance that goes into the sport of ice skating. And I’m really, really grateful for a sport that includes music, an element that is so critical in figure skating.
I’m grateful I get to watch ice skaters do all of these amazing tricks and moves, and for a sport that inspires us as we watch to dream big.
