This year has been amazing for me and for CRG! We had an amazing season which ended when our travel team went San Diego to play on the bank track, eat amazing food and hang out at the beach. It was also when I found out I was pregnant. Two days before our bout to be exact. That was a surprise for sure. I wasn’t sure what being a parent was going to be like and I was very distraught that I wouldn’t be playing roller derby for almost a whole season–a near death sentence.

It hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. I am on the events committee and I am working hard with them to schedule some awesome things this year! I signed up to help lead rookie practices and I try to help out at practice as much as I can. It is amazing to see my teammates new and old work hard together. I know they are going to kill everyone this season and I will be on the sidelines cheering each and everyone of them on!
I do miss skating more than anything right now. It has been 22 weeks since I have been off skates ( gasp!). I need a low- impact exercise substitute stat! Who am I kidding though, there is no substitute for derby. I feel like I am going to turn into one of those people that start watching videos of their old games, talking about when they used to mean something to the team. Ok, it is time for me to head out the door and help coach the rookie practice. See you on the track!
