I started skating when I started with LRD.
I couldn’t stand up. Literally couldn’t stand up. I remember sitting on the floor outside the sports hall and wondering how to get up without having a “Bambi on ice” moment ending up face down, my limbs having all gone in different directions. So achievement number 1? Standing up.
At the beginning, would I ever have thought that in 6 months time I’d be rostered for my first bout? No way! So achievement number... ? I don’t know what number. Too many achievements in such a short space of time.
That’s a big part of why I love derby. Every session you’re challenged and pushed and better yourself. Through the bruises and the sweaty pads emerges at the end of every session, a better skater. And it’s great seeing the rest of the league develop, as individuals and together.
And another reason I love it? Yep, cheesy corny league love. I love my league. Awesome people and awesome derby. Couldn’t ask for anymore.
I can’t write anymore right now, because I have to go get ready for training...
So yes, derby has taken over my life.
