I hope everyone was able to tune in and watch the 2010 AT&T
US Figure Skating Championships in Spokane, WA on NBC....the
crowd was as great as it was in 2007 and the skating went
well for many, especially me!
I was really proud of myself for being able to skate well,
knowing fully well that everyone had put out their best
effort that night. I just went out there, took a breath, put
a smile on my face, and let myself soak in the atmosphere.
Being out there that night, I was able to forget about all
the hardships that I had gone through the past year and just
really enjoy myself.
This ongoing season, I have been continually working to put
the pieces of the puzzle together, and each time I compete,
I have been listening to all the feedback that I have been
given, so that I will be able to get one step closer to a
personal best. Thank you to everyone who has given me
Even though I managed to pack all my wires and battery
chargers for my camera, I somehow forgot to pack my camera,
so I don't have very many pictures from Nationals, but I
thought I'd include a few pictures from my phone...enjoy!

The Jay Leno Show
10 p.m. Eastern
Please watch Evan on the Jay Leno show!! I'm going to be
there to watch him!!!
Did I also mention that Evan is the best training buddy
ever? No matter how tired he is, he pushes himself to do
his programs, so he can do it in any kind of situation.
Watching him train is so motivating for me...I try to
follow his example by doing programs with the intensity
he has, but somehow my attempts just don't match
his....Thank you Evan for always being there to give me
a piece of advice and motivating me to do my best!
Also, a big big big thank you to Galina and Mr. Carroll
for standing at the wall for me at Nationals and giving
me the confidence to skate my best. The last minute tips
are always the ones that linger the longest in my mind
and my coaches knew what I needed to be reminded of...so
I know there's a big list of people I need to thank, but
it's getting late now...I've got a big day tomorrow, so
I'll save the list for next time!
Lastly, I just want to thank everyone for all
their support...I appreciate everyone who has been cheering
me on, through the good times and the bad!...Korekaramo
