I drove up with Tim, Karen, and the Moose! It was fun, we stayed at the Olympic Motor with this guy who was awesome, he had outside-the-box opinions about everything!! My second time EVER on the long track. I really like it, I get something out of it I don't get from short track. That feeling when you step onto the ice, hear that clapping from everyones skates, and that amazing view!!! It's so liberating! Maybe it's unique to outdoor ovals, I haven't been on an indoor one yet. I made a poem about the Oval a while ago, right after I skated the Charles Jewtraw meet.
When I reread it I want to go back for more!!
Who doesnt love Lake Placid?!
Here are my times:
1000m - 138.25 (PB by 4 seconds!!)
500m - 48.52 (PB by 4 seconds again!!)
