Houston Roller Derby had a skate-a-thon this weekend. We were raising money for our travel team, who represents us all at away bouts. We skated a 3 mile loop in the Heights area – my old stomping grounds! We even skated past my old home. Le sigh. Good times
I ended up raising $300 after skating 15 miles! There were 4 freshies [fresh meat] including myself, and the rest of the skaters were travel team and other derby league skaters. Most of them did about 21 miles or more! I couldn’t go anymore – not because i was tired, but because my feet HURT. I can’t wait until my skates are all broken in and I am that in shape…the max amount was 33 miles. Craziness!
The event ended up being a lot of fun. I’m glad we were able to raise money for our travel team and then pig out at Christian’s Tailgate afterwards.
