roller derby adrenaline rush UPDATE :D

guess what started back this week?? ๐Ÿ˜‰ yay roller derby!
did i mention i am an official machete bettie?? because i am!!
 [ that’s the houston rec league team ๐Ÿ™‚ ]
do you know what that means? i get to hit people now! or dodge people trying to hit me!
it’s awesome!

AND i scrimmaged tonight for the 2nd time.
let me tell you about my first time. i jammed twice, but i didn’t realize how TIRED i’d get going full speed for so long. and how much effort it took to get back up after a giant shove! one of the girls saw me struggling towards the end and whipped me – it was great ๐Ÿ™‚

tonight was amazing. i actually looked around to see what was happening and what needed to happen!
i blocked with team mates, pushed girls, blocked jammers – i’m still going crazy off the adrenaline!
as a jammer i did a lot better tonight. i was lead jammer both times, and someone even commented on my ducking and weaving!
i can’t wait to get my endurance up so i can last longer and take more beatings! 

and if all that isn’t exciting enough, i am working on some tshirt designs!

[ you can’t tell, but i’m saying, “ehhhyy!!” like the fonz ๐Ÿ˜‰ ]
thanks to some customer feedback i have started screen printing the mustachasaurus ๐Ÿ™‚

and if any of y’all have any derby name ideas…please share!
feisty fox? feisty frenzy?
tricera-rox? roxic avenger?
how do i STILL not have one?!
thank you kindly ๐Ÿ™‚
