I SKATED A SECOND LAP!!!!!
For those of you who dont know how fast that is...its fast. At least for me, since ive NEVER gone under 10. We were doing 2 lap fliers (2 fast laps) when Mike called out a 9.9 for the first lap, i was thinking NO FREAKIN WAY! and kept going, then he called the 9.7. I pretty much had a spaz attack and asked him about 5 times if he was kidding. It felt like I won the olympics or something, it was crazy.
So after practice I was like...
Me: "Mike, Im gonna get Cat.1 at north americans, ok?"
Mike: "Yeah, that sounds like a very good idea, do that."
Im tellin ya, im gonna make it happen!
