Derby Bruises

You probably already knew this... but derby hurts. Last week, I was waiting around before a practice when someone stuck their head out from inside the rink, looked at the group in the lobby, and said "Oh yay, the crazy people are here!" At first I was offended. Then I thought about it...

I'm awfully proud of these bruises.

Elbow bruise from falling several times on the same elbow at an open skate (and not being smart enough to put on elbow pads).

Back of upper arm.

A better picture of the arm.

My elbow was quite lovely from the same practice as the upper arm, but I didn't get a photo for some reason. It all looks more impressive in person, and my legs are covered in tiny marks.

I often worry that people will think I'm being abused. But it's so worth it.
