I don’t know if I’m crazy or just stupid. Either way, I’ve made the time and financial commitment to learn how to roller skate…with the Storm City Roller Girls! Last week I found out that Vancouver has a roller derby league so I immediately went to check it out and enlisted. Roller derby was something I thought about doing four years ago when I moved up here, but at the time, it was a little too far away, expensive, and time-consuming. But the opportunity is here now – I might as well grab it while I’m still young enough to do so!
These pictures were taken at my first practice with Storm City. In the first one, it almost looks like I know how to skate! I’m envisioning sucking for a while, but since practice is 4 days a week, I’m hoping that I’ll improve quickly. We’ll see!
