When I was 8 or so, "Santa" gave me a pair of tennis-shoe skates. They were the COOLEST thing I owned and I went EVERYWHERE in them. Loved them. They were a size too big for me so I got a LOT of use out of them before I outgrew them.
We were at Savers the other day and look what I found...
I'm not quite as adept on them as I used to be but hey, it's been 20+ years so the fact that I did NOT land on my keister while trying them out is a good thing! My calves and my butt and the balls of my feet hurt like you wouldn't believe but that's what Motrin is for.
I'm loving it!
