So now that I am back to derby regularly again, its time for some good news! I will be doing my minimum skills test at the end of the month. This came about because of the first time ever, I passed my 25 in 5! I just about passed out, but I did it. It was probably one of my proudest roller derby moments.
Once I learned we would be skills testing, I got a bit worried because I still havent mastered jumping. Its this big huge thing that I am super paranoid about. So veteran skater took me out last practice and we worked on jumping, and guess what! I can jump! Its not consistent, but I am capable of doing it.
It’s been a long, hard road, but I’m finally getting there!
