blogGo Skateboarding Day 2014

June 21, 2014


Finally got to celebrate.

The day started off with a bang at the Polk Museum of Art where the Innoskate festivities continued for day 2. The event was a great success, but I was just a spectator. I wanted to physically celebrate, not just watch. Of course, I wasn’t going to bust out my super graceful skills in front of all the people who actually know what they’re doing. Wouldn’t want anyone to get jealous.

Go Skateboarding Day had been on my holiday list every year for the past 3 years and, for the previous two, I sat it out. See, I lack balance and coordination, two necessities in skateboarding. The very first time I ever tried, I was in high school. It pretty much went Sawyer steps on board, Sawyer breaks her butt. I waited over 10 years for my next attempt. I was much better at it, but I was still terrified of having a loose piece of wood on wheels under my feet. Sometimes I loose my balance walking, so wheels don’t do anything to help.

Leave it to a holiday to motivate me. I had no choice, I had to try. Try I did and I made more progress in this one evening than I ever had before. At the end of the night, I was determined to make a loop around the houseā€¦inside that is. I was surprised, but I was able to navigate around furniture and an insane dog to make the loop. Definitely going to be an annual celebration from now on.
