Why roller derby? I first joined derby postpartum because I wanted a reason to get in shape and meet other like-minded weirdos. It soon became a focal point of my life though and 12 years later – through moves, pregnancies, school, and life passing all around me – I always seem to come back to this sport. It has afforded me some of the best friends that I will have for the rest of my life and the confidence to know that I am capable and strong. It’s taught me to fall down–to not fear the fall, but to embrace it, and to always get back up. Mostly, I love that my children will never doubt that their mother is a badass, that her friends are badasses, and that they will grow to love and respect badassery in all the women they encounter throughout their lives.
