I’ve been waiting to announce the news until I was absolutely, positively, sure about it. And after about a month or so of going back and forth I’ve decided that yes, I am going to do it-I’m going to try out for a roller derby team! It’s been something that I’ve been interested in for awhile, but now I’m finally doing something about it. I’m letting it be more than just a thought…I’m actually going to do it!
I used to be a decent skater back in the day. All of my birthday parties were at skating rinks, I had blades and roller skates. BUUUUUT I haven’t been on a pair since I was about 16 (well, ice skates, but…not counting that). I contacted the people in charge of this areas derby team, expressing my interest and concern about lack of experience and they told me not to worry. A lot of them hadn’t had recent experience on skates when they started either! What a relief! I’m going to an informational meeting in 2 weeks and until then I’m going to roller skate with a couple of other girls trying out (with and without experience), starting tonight!
I’m hoping I’ll get on the skates and everything will come back to me…we shall see.
