This is 100% what I am waiting for, the Ah hah! moment. I know once I get the feeling of that first stop I know I will be good. Last Friday night I went to a public skate and it was really hard to work on stuff b/c it was so crowded, but one thing happened that kind of helped me out. I was skating around and strating to pick up some speed and I went around one kid and then all of a sudden a women and her little kid darted out from the other direction. I had to turn out of the way so quick that I started and little hockey stop and made it around them. That is the first time that has happened and now I need to work on having that feeling again.

I can't even tell you how much I am into hockey right now so working hard at it is not going to be an issue
