Gliding

16 Dec

Although we haven’t celebrated the Southern solstice yet, it’s safe to say winter has arrived in Northeast Ohio. The truth is I don’t really mind the snow, and I enjoy all the sports that come along with the season. Skiing and tubing are always a blast, but my favorite is definitely ice skating.

The instant I’m on the ice, I feel like a kid again back on our pond in Newton Falls. Winter was always a fun season in my family. My dad took us for snowmobile rides through our fields and pulled us behind the tractor on the “giant sled.”  We went sledding on our barn hill, built snow men in the front yard, and of course had epic hockey games on our backyard pond.

I’ve been ice skating since I can remember, and it’s something I’ll always love. I have such fond memories of gliding across the pond, racing from end to end. I wasn’t the best with a hockey stick, but I was a good, little skater.

I recently discovered that Lock 3 in Akron offers ice skating during winter. If you’re looking for something to do with the family, it’s only $3 to rent skates and free if you have your own. It was great to be skating again, and you can bet I’ll be back before the rink closes in February.

Cheers to the winter season and all the magic it brings. Happy gliding!
