It’s been three and a half weeks since I’ve had my expander removed.
I just returned from Rollercon and had a great time coaching. It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to coach off skates and I found myself on the Cherry Track with grippy wheels (OH HELL, for those who know what I’m talking abouut) which was the PERFECT amount of sweating, rolling, skating and connecting. I was truly sorry I hadn’t signed up to scrimmage in the derby over 40 scrimmage.
This is the year for me to make it known that there is another way and WE can do it. People are afraid that corporations are going to bring their own version of the sport so LET’S BEAT THEM TO IT by offering another way to go. It is a sport and it is time to mainstream. Offering another option will not diminish WFTDA, it will legitimately train skaters who might find their best fit on a WFTDA league.
The world is small and the derby community hasn’t even gotten started yet.
I am SO HAPPY to be part of this world today. We can’t count on having tomorrow and why settle for anything less then spectacular? We all deserve it.
Share the freaking love! OH, and no whining. STFU and skate! 🙂 I say that as an encouragement and with all due respect.
