It was on the horizon of the 2014 Winter Olympics that we wanted to try our hands at some of the winter sports they never tried as kids. One trip took us up to Fort Erie and this trip took us to South Buffalo. We were going to try our hands at Speed Skating... that's right, the sport with the blades that could slice your throat open. As we were signing release forms we realized this might not just be a skate around the rink.

...it wasn't. This sport is tough, fast and thrilling. While we didn't leave the rink ready for a competition we did leave being able to make it around the ice in a semi-race.

Thanks to the folks at Buffalo Speedskating Club for having us out, we still talk about it!
