From Dancer to Derby
Thursday mornings are the best because I wake up covered in bruises and scratches from scrimmage the night before. And before I’m fully awake, I can feel my sore muscles protest and a flood of memories from scrimmage come at me. It’s like before I’m even fully awake, I’m happy.

Got back from practice yesterday feeling inspired and sore as hell. Just taped off my own agility ladder in the basement and completed my first agility workout! Two times through off-skates, two times through on-skates…

Off-season?

WHAT OFF-SEASON?

I have recently come off of injured reserve after a gnarly scrimmage accident (broken leg in 3 places) and I thank you very much for this blog. You have reminded me why I fell in love with derby in the first place and why I never once thought of quitting. Derby Love! <3

*blushes*  Well I’m sorry about your broken leg (YOWCH!) but I’m happy to help in any way I can!  Derby love all around!  Keep on keeping on, chica.
