HUGE Breakthrough

Ok so its like this...every once in awhile the Kitty has a breakdown. Not sure why, not even really sure what brings it on. But every once in while I get so frustrated during a pratice I literally feel like crying. It happened tonight.
I just couldn't catch the girl at the front of the blocking line and it just broke me down. And you know what...its totally ok!
I what...a little frustration tears can go along way! Kind words from team mates go every further! My derby wife successfully talked me down and I took a moment then got right on to the next drill.
Now a month ago I may have given up, taken my skates off and gone home just sure I was never gonna make it. Not tonight! Tonight I took my moment, brushed myself off and got right back too it!
This is what will make me a force to be reckoned with when my skates finally catch up to my heart! I love this sport, I love this league, it's a piece of my heart now!

There's no place like home!

Got home from Europe late last night. Vacation was great but it seems like as soon as I got home I started thuinking about derby again. I am so addicted it hurts!

Met up with some of my girls today and skated, between the sea legs and the jet lag I totally blew HOWEVER...I still went and I did my laps I even managed to slip in a Cha Cha Slide and a race! I didn't win but I didn't give up either!

It totally Ok to have a bad week!...Right?

OK so I was just OFF this week! My speed is getting better but my mind was just not there. It must be the impending vacation. But that's ok! I know I love derby and this just wasn't my week. But I didn't give up I just kept going and that's what counts!
Keep Going Roller Babies!!!!

Addiction to Derby

Ok so you know you're addicited to Derby when:
You actually call the cruise line to see if you can bring you're skates with you. Stupid NCL, the answer was no. COurse the hubby, while sweetly saying he'd lug them all over Europe even tho he didn't want to, was slightly relieved.
