In early February of 2022, Beijing will (fingers crossed) host the XXIV Olympic Winter Games.

In honor of the world’s elite athletes coming together to compete in cold-weather sports (including figure skating and speed skating), Jessica Marshall and I are trying out several activities featured in the winter games. 

We started with ice skating because, conveniently enough, we have a competitive figure skater right here at the TU. In addition to being The Eagle podcast host, Marshall skates — well — and has been on the ice since she was 4-years-old. 

So she took me — who quickly learned ice skating is much, much different than in-line skating — out for a lesson at The Empire State Plaza Ice Rink in Albany. The rink is now open for the season. We focused on four basic skills, starting with falling down!
