Rollerskating Used To Be So Much Fun

I looked at my roller skates the other day in the closet. It’s been a long time since they have been used. As in years. It was always so much fun to go. There were times that I was going up to three days a week. I really liked to skate backwards and stand still and spin in circles. And dance while skating, moving my skates to the music. The only thing that wasn’t fun was when someone ran into me and knocked me down. That happened a couple of times. But overall, it was a lot of fun.

I wish I would have learned when I was younger, but when I tried as a teenager I fell bad lol.

Roller skating was a fun activity. My husband and I often went roller skating when we were dating. Not inline skates either.

@Morleyhunt Yes, the roller skating with the four wheels on each skate. That is true skating to me.

I loved to roller skate too. Also loved to ice skate. I think it would be fun for me to give roller skating and ice skating another try. However, at my age, falling down would not be a good thing.

I did a bit of roller skating and ice skating in my younger days but was never good at it.

I used to go roller skating and ice skating all the time. Since I got a dislocated hip I can not go anymore.

My daughter loved to roller skate as did my sister. I enjoyed ice skating. Only roller skated a few times. Suffered way too many a skinned knee and bruised elbow.

It really is a ton of fun as long as we keep doing it. After skating for years, somehow we were busy and forgot to keep skating! Not so sure now if I would do it without a little practice.

I remember the days of skating with my friends when we were teens. It seemed that we went every weekend.

I haven't roller skated since I was a teen but I certainly enjoyed it as a child and as a young woman.

Seems like nobody really does skate anymore. I think the last skates I remember where in line skates. After that its like I never heard anyone talk about skating or anything related.

I haven't roller skated since I was a teenager. But I had a lot of fun back in those days. Our former roller skating rink is now a bingo hall.
