Day 17: Someone from your childhood

I didn't quite finish the list of 30 Days of Letters that I started in December.  So I thought I'd work on finish it now!

To my skating coaches-

I started skating when I was 12, which is quite late for someone who wants to be competitive in figure skating.  That being said, you never told me the things I wanted to accomplish were impossible.  You encouraged me when I was down and became my therapists on the ice.  My teen years were awkward, that's for sure, but it helped that I had a place where I felt safe.

I would not be where I am today with out each of you.  I wouldn't have some of the best friends of my life, if you hadn't encouraged me to keep skating when I really wanted to quit.  Thank you so much for believing in me and knowing that I could do it when I wasn't even sure!
