    I was 7 when I started skating. No lessons, just put on the skates and head out to the lake with my older brothers.

    Started playing hockey at 14. Took skating lessons when I was 6, but pretty much had to learn how to skate again.

    I've been skating for 40 years now. It's like walking, I never remember my life when I didn't skate. Not quite as fast as I was 15 years ago but after 2 knee surgeries and a hamstring that I tore in half I guess that's to be expected. I still play against a tier 2 junior team a lot and I can keep up with them. I do hook and hold a little though.
