You Ain't Ready for Cali
They called for Trios (I described these on my very first trip to Cerritos back in February 2010 awwwww) and this is my cue to get off the floor, but a couple of my buddies talked me into doing it with them. Wow. I thought I was terrified before. For a special event like this, there are dozens of skaters that can skate trios, so it wasn't like the floor was empty or anything. There has to be 15 groups on the floor, and some had as many as seven skaters. We mostly did this thing where we linked our arms together, and I was in the middle getting pulled back and forth like crazy. We also tried holding hands and going in circles, which involves a lot of a backwards/forwards skating. Much scarier. Plus I felt like one of them was going to break my wrist. So we went back to the other way. I was so frightened but I felt like I grew as a skater in those moments. I'm proud of myself for conquering trios.
