Sounds similar to my story but I didn't even get to my first bout :o(. Back on skates now though. Two weeks in and lost 4 pounds without altering my diet!

I skate roller derby, I make pottery. Not at the same time!

So, after completing my min skills req, I hyperextended my knee and snapped my ACL my first bout. Grr. I am almost 6 months out from surgery, so I expect to have a green light for derby in a few weeks. In the mean time, I ran my first 5k a couple of days ago, and it was great! I am looking forward to re-losing the 30 lbs I did when I got rolling last summer!

I'm Discord Diva and I skate with Glasgow Roller Girls in Scotland. I'm also Treasurer for Team Scotland and was recently in Toronto cheering on our national team after months of frantic fundraising and organising.

I joined the league just under 2 years ago, went through our Glasgow Roller Recruits 3 month 'fresh meat' course, passed my WFTDA minimum requirements assessments and a month into full league training, promptly fell and broke my tailbone! A year of constant pain and 6 months of confidence crisis later and I'm back on skates (spurred on by the World Cup) and ready to get back to full fitness and (fingers crossed) team selection.

I'm also just about to take part in the European WFTDA Officiating Clinic next month, which is being hosted by my league, so that I can work towards my skating retirement plan (I'm in my 40s and know my team-skating days are already numbered), which is refereeing/NSOing!

I am pretty new to Derby. I live on an Army Post that is really remote and small. We have been working on putting a team together since April of last year. We recently had an experienced skater move down from the JBLM Bettie Brigade in Washington. She is working as our coach and kicking our asses into gear.
My Derby name is Leia M. Low (lay-em-low). Our team/league is called the Fort Irwin Heavy Arm-her Roller Derby, acronym H.A.R.D. In the army, a tank unit is called a Heavy Armor Unit. Our post is mainly Tanker run, so thats why we went with Heavy Arm-her :)
P.s. I tend to over-explain things...lol.

I skated with Windy City for four years as Annie Maim (after my favorite movie Auntie Mame). Two years as a Double Crosser, two as a Manic Attacker.

I'm retired, but I'm about 90% on joining a new startup league in the burbs.

My name is Lisa
Derby name is Crafty Vixen
I'm fresh meat for D3 (The Des Moines Derby Dames) and I've been on a stress fracture for the past few weeks. No skating, no weight bearing... and I've been terribly bad about my nutrition since I went on injury.

I have about 100+ pounds to lose. emoticon

Are you a derby girl, or an aspiring one?
Your derby name?
Your league name?

We are just now in the works putting together a league and teams in my area. Our league name (so far) is Gallatin Roller Girlz, in the Gallatin Valley in Montana.

Hope to hear all about your leagues and teams!
