Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink
Though the holidays have passed, there’s always room for winter festivities. Ice skating is how I hold onto that seasonal spirit. I went to Philadelphia’s Dilworth Park with my bestie, Liza, to enjoy the Rothman Orthopaedics ice skating rink. It was a quick wait to get our wristbands and ice skates, and we were off to the ice. There was a mix of folks: families, couples, and college kids, ideal for people watching. Liza and I held hands as we spun, ‘round and ‘round. The sparkling lights above my head twinkled as I enjoyed the pop hits from Taylor Swift playing in the background (hello Anti-hero). Afterwards we grabbed some hot chocolate (with extra whipped cream) from the heated cafe on-site. A perfect January day in my eyes.
Now, I can’t always go skating year round, but I can with Off-Ice Skates. This UK brand has innovated ice skates for, well, off the ice! Easy to use and super fun to glide around anywhere! I get to practice my moves at my local park or while walking my dogs. Staying fit while having a blast is important to leading a healthy life in 2023. If you’re interested in getting a pair, check out their package deal that includes Wrist Guards, Spinner, Water Bottle and Resistance Band. Accessories to complete your skating journey!
Safety is paramount when skating (knee pads are my best friend). But also physical safety; for example, when skating into the evening or at empty parks. Female Defense Products provides me with a way to stay safe with their stun guns. Streetwise Security Ladies Choice comes with a built in alarm and safety pin (meaning if it’s not attached the stun gun won’t work). I can clip it onto my coat while skating and have peace of mind while traveling at night. They have a range of products to choose from to make 2023 the year of protection and confidence.
