A friend of mine in VA joined her local derby league, and I thought she was crazy. She has two kids and is a stay at home mom like I am, and it seemed to come out of left field. When she started posting pictures and videos of her progress, her new friends, and how much fun she was having, I thought maybe I should check it out, too. I went to the QCRG 2018 playoff game alone to see if I could picture myself playing. During the game, a skater was badly injured, and I remember thinking “I hope she’s okay!… I still think I can do this.” I joined boot camp a few months later.
