Roller Derby

2 Feb
Before you are able to scrimmage with roller derby you have to pass your WFTDA minimum skills, there are easy parts like skating in the correct form, and harder parts like mastering t-stops and 25 laps of the track in 5 minutes.

On average it takes about 3 months of hard work for a new skater to acquire the skills to pass all the tests. Sunday 6th February is my 3 month birthday with MMR (Middlesbrough Milk Rollers) and tonight I finally passed all my minimum skills.

It’s official, I’m a proper fully fledged roller girl. Say hello to Biff Bamboozle #B33

Not Janathon

1 Feb
I’m so tired! 🙂 I’ve been in Cambridge all day, and had to get up with the lark to get there for my midday meeting. Every train has been delayed and I just want to go home: currently at Grantham waiting for my Durham train. Despite the rubbish trains it has been a good day, but I have had the strange desire to go for a run for most of the afternoon. I think Janathon really has rubbed off on me! 🙂
