This revolution has summoned the inner athletes in women of all ages from all over the world to play a full contact sport in roller skates just for the love of it. That sounds almost too crazy to be true. It has changed our lives. We are fearless and dedicated to something that is our own.
I have given up everything for this sport. Ask my loved ones. EVERYTHING is second to roller derby. I skate 4 days a week and make my best effort to get hot yoga in there on Tuesdays. Also I’m running, and I hate running. Then I ride my bike to work every day while I maintain a full time day job, which I love because it allows me to maintain my roller derby career through the health insurance and flexible time-off benefits.
