Congratulations to my cakes!! #2nd place!! #speedskate #inlineskating

Yesterday I accompanied E to his first speed skating competition in over 10 years. He was a pretty damn good speed skater when he was a teen and won multiple medals with his skills. He let it go due to being a teenager and wanting to do other things.. Cars became a big interest in his life and ya can't forget girls Lol!

He started practicing again a couple months ago and being the fantastical wife that I am haha, I accompany him to his practices and cheer him on. You'd think that I'd get bored, but speed skating is pretty damn entertaining.. even if it's just a practice. Plus Coach Mel (in the last picture to the left of him) is pretty entertaining!

We drove an hour away from our home to Humble, TX for his competition at Humble Family Skate Center. At first we thought it was just going to be a half time thing to promote speed skating during the roller derby bout. We found out a couple days prior that it was an actual competition. This made us both a bit nervous, me more then him. He's a very competitive dude but if you haven't seen him skate then you're in for a surprise.

My cakes (nickname we have for each other Lol) got 2nd place and was more then happy. I'd say it's a pretty damn good win for someone who hasn't skated in over a decade AND someone who skated on a rink that he isn't use to. 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I really need to step my game up when it comes to action pictures. We plan on attending more competitions in the future so I'll have plenty of practice. Find the rest of the pictures on flickr.

..till next time ;]
