That's right folks, I have
It is really hard to explain to people who don't get it. I LOVED skating when I was younger and was good. I had always missed skating, but thought I would look stupid going to the skating rink as a grown adult and trying to hang with the kiddos. Then I read an article in our local paper about Derby. It got me totally pumped. I looked up their information and found out that they usually have a few people at a local rink a certain night a week so you can ask questions. I mulled it over for weeks and weeks before I actually decided to go. I was like a little school girl again. I was SO nervous thinking that I wouldn't be anything near what they were looking for. I mean, hello, one glimpse of me and you would never say Roller Girl. I'm not fit or thin or Derby. I was there for a whole hour before I worked up the nerve to actually talk to the girl who was there from ARRG. The huz went with me just to help boost my confidence, which didn't really help. Then, I talked to her and she was SUPER nice and gave me information on when and where practices were. The next week began my love affair with Roller Derby. I LOVED it and I loved the girls. I've never had a lot of girl friends and getting to hang out with the bravest, smartest, and best girls I have ever met was great. I've missed them.
So, I took the plunge last night and went to info night and signed up to try out for the team again. I have the next 3 Mondays of Booty camp where I am sure my ass will be handed to me more times than not by the hard, wooden floor that we skate on. Then, the monday after that (the 4th monday) I will have try outs. I honestly don't know what to expect for try outs. I would LOVE to say "I've got this, I am totally going to rock and make the team", however I am realistic. I haven't been on skates in almost 2 years. Save Halloween this year when I was dressed up as a roller girl while 8 months preggo. :) Yes, I am a freak.
Now I think Jillian Michaels and I are going to have to get close again. I have taken
So, Jillian Michaels and I will continue our hate/hate relationship and I will keep you posted on whether I make the team or not.
