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.
Roller derby ref, computer programmer, husband, pet servant, eclectic guy. That about says it all, except the other stuff.
