Ice skating is a beautiful sport to watch, but how hard is it to actually do? I decided to try it with one of my friends, who had also never been ice skating before. After an hour of skating I realized learning to ice skate is not necessarily hard but it is not exactly easy either.

After an hour our feet started to hurt from how uncomfortable the skates were so we decided we had stayed long enough and went to return our skates. When we got to the counter to return
