Too Sore to Write

Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.

I spent my weekend at Missouri Co-Ed Roller Derby's Beat Me Halfway co-ed derby bootcamp.

Good Things:
-Met some great people from leagues around the midwest.
-Saw some incredible skaters in action.
-Am infinitely more comfortable on my toe stops.
-Upgraded toe stops (to Gumballs) and replaced all my worn-out pads (with new 187s).
-Got any cockiness slammed out of me with the reminder that I have so much to learn.
-Now thinking about jamming as learning to improve starts and stops.

Bad Things:
-A fellow Royal Pain broke her leg and is having surgery today. Keep Do'er Dye in your thoughts and/or prayers today—whatever your thing is.
-I have bruises on my forearm, upper arms, left outer thigh, both inner thighs, at least one butt cheek, my right shin and possibly the tops of my feet.
-It was 1am before I got home, and I still needed to shower derby sweat off of me.

Will I do it again? Abso-freakin-lutely!

I was so sad to see the pic of Do'ers leg on FB. Prayers for a speedy recovery for her.
Glad I found this blog I'll have to start following it.
