lame!

so remember how i said life was slowing down? PSH. now work is super busy! i'm used to getting through my to-do list by the end of the day...but i've had the same things on it all week! dang those time consuming tasks....
fun things!
first off: i went to derby tuesday night and we did some AWESOME and yet brutal drills! we skated forEVER, which is great, because endurance is not currently in my vocabulary...
we also did loads of pack work...and i fell quite a few times! one fall in particular was epic. at least the way i picture it is. :) a girl in front of me fell and her skate hit the toe of my skates, and i dove, chest first [!!], into the ground. my ribs are killing me! [b/c after my chest hit...the rest of me did...haha]
BUT i got back up and sped up real fast! after being yelled at for stopping short over and over i finally followed through and chased the jammer down...and impressed some folks. :D
YES i still have oh-so-far to go. but tuesday's practice was successful. lots of good things! PLUS a good friend of mine started. which is even more encouraging :)

also! my birthday is on the 19th, so my super awesome sister is coming to town this long weekend and we are going to hang! this means that crazy fun photos are coming to the blog!

i have been so lame all week. the only photos i've taken are with my phone. hahaha [hence the subject of this crazy post].
i've been rollerskating, rollerblading, and running, for 2 weeks now. just got back from the gym and am feeling pumped. a bit TOO pumped...[as you can tell...]
my apologies...goodnight!

  4. OMG, I've been running too! For the first time in my life and it's awesome. I suck at it really hard, but I'm doing it. I'm really impressed with all of your roller derby stuff. I want to do it, but I just don't have time now that I'm in school ;(
