Holy Ribcage Batman

I hate having an invisible injury. My ribcage is messed up and causing me a lot of pain, but no one can see it. This means no pity for me and everyone invariably hugs me really hard. Thanks to Urrkn' and the recruits for letting me skate with them while I heal up. Good luck to the Kung Fu Donnas this Saturday in Lincoln, Nebraska . Extra special luck to my travel team the Judo Janes . I know you will rock it out there. Knock a couple down for me.

I would like to thank all the ladies who took their time and made it out to the car wash today. Even though the rain got the best of us, I had a great time dancing and holding up signs on the street. Maybe we should do this more often, and next time I'll fill up my gas tank before I go out.

Skate Drag

I'm so sick of going through skate laces like underwear. This last week alone I had to replace the lace on my left skate 3 TIMES! Anyone else have this jacked up luck??? I tried sanding out the eyelets like I was told but I don't think that helped much. I use leather laces on my work boots and they have lasted me a good while even though sparks and hot metal fall on them throughout the day. However, I heard leather laces on skates break faster than the nylon ones we have. I will have to try them out anyway to test my theory. I've been doing my lace homework and I came across these Snakes! Laces by Old Kook. If worse comes to worse, I'll have to try these bad boys out!

Trial and Error

OK! so here's my third attempt of posting a blog on the FOCO Girls Gone Derby's Blog...
I hope it works... I have lots of thing to "Blog" about, my mind is always racing and for those of you that know me, I've always got something to say, or something to laugh about.

Practice, practice, practice

Thursday is scrimmage night. I just made the Chanel Cartel in June, so scrimmaging is still pretty new to me. I really love scrimmaging, but I am still learning how to be an effective member of the team. I know it just takes practice to know when to hit, dodge, slow down, speed up etc, etc. It is challenging and exciting. The best part of last Thursday's scrimmage was jamming. That's right I was a jammer. I had a great time and it was EXHAUSTING. I don't know how you other ladies do it over and over again. I got hit down a lot, fell down a lot, and wasn't very good at getting through the pack. However, I really feel I learned a lot about what it is like to be a jammer I'm going to be hitting girls out of my jammers way and pushing her though as much as I can, because that is a tough job you ladies do.

Until next time,
