Sorry for the lull in posts, I was on vacation last week and dropped the ball! We’re back at it this week with my derby daughter, Erica! (Like a derby wife, only I bring her snacks and she keeps me up-to-date on what the young people are doing these days.)
Derby name? SindyBooHoo
Favorite position? Jammer
What’s derby taught you? It’s taught me that I like at least one sport and I can do the seemingly impossible- I didn’t know how to skate when I started, but now I can do all these sick tricks!
What do you do when you’re not at derby? I work two jobs and go to school full time for Sociology and English. I also enjoy yoga, hiking, and writing.
What advice would you give to people considering giving derby a try? Do it. You’re never going to be younger than right now, and you definitely will not regret it. Not only will you gain a whole new group of friends, and get out that daily aggression and frustration, but you’ll feel the accomplishment that comes with trying something new and falling in love.
Yeah! Come fall in love with derby at our latest fresh meat boot camp, beginning this Sunday! Check out our Facebook page for more details!
