Rookie Season Like a Boss

My first season as a member of Houston Roller Derby is officially over.
Things went pretty well this year. Two amazing teams and lots [and lots] of learning along the way.
My home team, the Bayou City Bosses, finally pulled it together for a couple sweet wins. As time passed I felt like a member of a new family [cheese!].
And being a member of the Knockouts [our B travel team] was an exhilarating experience as well. :)

Physically, I have upped my endurance and balance. I barely played at the start of the season, then one team decided that a jammer I should be, and put me in that spotlight. I am so grateful for that opportunity to prove myself It went a long way. I became more confident and put so much more effort into my game.
I won't bother you with the mental changes I have experienced, but it's been a pretty amazing journey.

A big thank you to my league mates for giving me a spot in which I grew as an athlete, as well as a person.

  1. I always knew you'd be a jammer! Consider me your secret cheerleader and fan! Oh, wait--it's not a secret now.
