Skating on Thin Ice

For the holidays, an outdoor mall near our house erected a small ice skating rink, however, the rink consisted of large sheets of plastic instead of ice. Despite the lack of ice, my girls still thought it was pretty cool.

 Skating on Thin Ice


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    I had no idea that you could ice skate on plastic! Either way I would be falling on my butt for sure. For some reason I could never get ice skating down. It looks like you guys are great at it :D

    Plastic! LOL! Now it makes sense… I saw something posted on FB about a plastic icerink… I didn’t realize you can SKATE on plastic. Next step is bringing them to a real one. They look like they would have a blast! I always loved ice skating. Now I am excited about bringing my boys one day!
