Roller Girl Boot Camp 

Today was a punishing day. I made it through MN roller girl try-outs!!! I survived four hours of drills and tests that I could not possibly do justice to in description here. Suffice it to say that it was one of the most physically demanding things I've ever put my body through - ever. After all that, I was chosen to go on to Roller Girl Boot Camp. There are no guarantees that I'm on a team, only that I have a chance to show team recruiters that I have the stuff to play the game. The next eight weeks will determine whether I make it on to a roller girl team or not. I cannot fucking believe I survived today. It was sooo hard! My mind is mush, I cannot feel my legs and I'm a little groggy from the celebratory beers I shared with friends down at the Bull Dog. What a great fucking day.

The count down to?.... 

It's the final count down to roller derby try-outs! By 6pm this Sunday I will know whether I'm a roller girl or not. It will be four long hard hours of back breaking, thigh crushing drills. Do I have what it takes? Hell if I know but stay tuned cuz I'll blog about it later.

At any rate, I have the distinct feeling that whether or not I make it onto the roller girls, this summer promises to be exceptionally profound in many ways: personally, spiritually, physically and professionally. I can sense it - it's so palpable! Can you feel it?

Roller Derby update 

Try outs for roller derby are just eleven days away. I'm in better shape now than when I started but I still have a lot of work to do to get ready - mostly having to do with building up my endurance. The out door skate park where I practice is also the scene of many a speed skater. It's all a flury of spandex, wheels and muscle. I'm thinking I like the speed skaters...
