2011 US Nationals: Day 3 (Saturday)

Day 3 for me here at Nationals, and I finally got some of my voice back so I could do some podcasting! I spent the morning sleeping in a bit to get really rested (a rare thing for me with two little ones at home) and went for a nice long walk. I ended up sitting next to Danny and Estelle Kwan in a cafe, and then walked back to my hotel to get ready for the Original Dance. A picture of Davis & White, who were brilliant as usual.

I also finally got to meet choreographer Tom Dickson in person, who I’ve interviewed but had never met in the flesh.

Then there was the on-ice Hall of Fame ceremony for Michelle Kwan:

And I gave a HUGE hug to Phillip Mills, who was the choreographer for Ashley Wagner’s two brilliant programs. He was standing with Paul Wylie’s mother:

So the interviews I got today were plentiful, which was good considering I missed two days after being sick and losing my voice! I got: Karen Kwan, Peter Oppegard, the Boys Who Score, Christy Krall, Allison Scott, Tom Z, Robert Mauti, Rockne Brubaker and a random fan.

About the Author
Yup, I’m a skating fan. But I’m a skater too. When I’m not working on my 4th Figure Test (just passed #3!), I’m trying to consistently land through double flip. I compete nearly every year in the U.S. Adult Figure Skating Championships, and am always thrilled to see my other skating buddies there. My supportive husband loves that his wife is fit, flexible and wears a lot of spandex. You see . . . everyone wins. In my real life I run a brand strategy firm called Rogue Element, where I get to make other companies look good.
