On a Roll!

Rollerblade With a Way of Thinking
Rollerblading is a sport that anybody can do with hard work, perseverance, and confidence. When rollerblading, its important to be confident. Always know it's possible and never forget to practice. Some ways to get used to rollerblading is having someone near, being with a professional, and learning where to fall, but that later. Rollerblading is not just sports, it's also fun to sing, dance, make up a game, and much more. Some people blade distances and have races, while others just use them to get fit. Some people say that rollerblades and roller skates are completely different except they have wheels, which is incorrect. Rollerblades have the wheels in a line, when a roller skate is made to be like a car, two wheels on either side of the shoe. Roller skates also make it so it’s easier to balance on. Lastly, rollerblades are used in sports when roller skates are usually not included. Otherwise, everything else is about the same between the two.
Fun is the Key
Can Rollerblading be Dangerous?
Be with a Proffesional
Proffesionals make sure that everything is going good, and can help whenever. Proffesionals will teach, show, and help teach to someone who has never rollerbladed before. They are also a great source of information and experience because most of them have been through a lot when they first started. A proffesional does not need to be someone that gets hired to help as a job. Experianced friends don't need to be hired or will ask for money to help. They also can help any day when they are able. While people who help for jobs, can't be there all the time when they are needed.
Everybody is Capable
In the end, rollerblading is hard, but in a fun way. When rollerblading, have fun and make games out of it. It is enjoyable on hot summer days, and just like ice cream. Sometimes is also fun to rollerblade when it's cold outside, but at a rink. People all around the world enjoy it, and have so much fun. They always look for the bright side and know they can. The experiance is amazing, and the possabilities are endless. People like to go up mountains in rollerblades, go to skate parks, and much more. It's not to late to start, and there won't be any regrets.
Rollerblade whenever, however and it will still be a blast!
