At times, I feel overwhelmed and my depression leads me into darkness
Everybody has to deal with tough times. A gold medal doesn't make you immune to that. A skater is used to falling down and getting up again
Luckily, I discovered ice skating when I was eight and a half years old. There were two wonderful ponds within walking distance of my house. After all the physical activity the summer provided, I craved movement in the cold of winter. I had no skates, so Mom stuffed socks into my brother's old ones.
