Big thanks to those of you that posted calming things on my last post about preparing for my first Roller Derby Bout. Naturally none of it made any difference at all, and I spent much of last week alternating between extreme calmness and total panic. A Tuesday night practice scrim went really well and was…

Preparing For My First Roller Derby Bout
