We went to Eastern Sectionals in Boston. Ana and Ben did Intermediate Pairs (and placed 3rd), and Ben also competed Intermediate Mens singles. It was a tough week – Ana had gotten the flu the week prior and was still coughing and miserable during the competition. Ben did not catch it (fortunately! lots of orange juice!) but he was a bit tired from skating both programs, since USFS scheduled Intermediate Mens and Intermediate Pairs the same day.
They pushed through and got it done, tho, and were very happy with their skates all things considered.
Plus, my dad came up from New York to see them, which was very nice.
