Roller derby has taken over my life.
I exercise to be fitter for derby. I don't eat better but if I did it would be for derby. I buy clothes to wear both normally and to derby. Tights have become my best friend thanks to derby. So have socks. Shorter hair is awesome under a helmet hence the big haircut (which I'm now bored of). I even bought a heap of studded earrings so I can wear them with my helmet. Goodbye hoops.
Monday night was the first time we trained outside on netball courts for rec league. It was a mad dash for some to change their wheels to outdoor or hybrids. I borrowed the mister's hybrids so I could lend out my outdoors. I'm not the biggest fan of my outdoors, they're a bit too narrow for my liking whereas the mister's Bruisers are wide and much easier to skate on in my opinion.
Knowing that at some stage I'd kiss the rough ground it was not the time for skimpy clothes. Layers would protect more than bare skin but I was still going to be sweating so not too many or I'd end up with heat exhaustion. Oh the dilemma! Luckily bruises, blood and gore are a derby girl's trophy.
|I like black.|
I found wearing tights without knee highs are uncomfy with my gaskets so knee highs are worn until summer when I'll be sporting rink rash from falling in just shorts.
|WTF did red eye reducer thingy do to my eyes?|
|I skipped a lot that night.|
