Bailey’s first competition was at our rink this weekend. It was a super small competition hosted by our club — I think it was more comfortable for Bailey to be on her home territory for her first one. She skated a clean program, but didn’t smile. She didn’t seem nervous or excited, it was just like any other day. I can’t seem to figure her out.
I’m starting to wonder if she really enjoys skating as much as she says she does. I’ve never pushed her to commit to anything, but I’ve asked her to follow through on her commitments when she makes them. For me, there’s a difference, but I’m not sure how it feels to her.
This feeling I have that she might quit is really killing me, but we’ll see what happens. She’s committed to one more competition in June and then she can decide what the future holds.
If the video is choppy, you may have to let it load all the way, then replay it. 🙂
