So over the weekend I attended the Roller Derby championships. It was the first time I’d been although I’ve been wanting to go for over a year. My mom, aunt and I went on the spur of the moment and yes we might have been a wee bit out of place but it was fun. The crowd was different than I expected. It was mostly female and I’m not sure I’ve seen that many tattoos, big tattoos in one place in a long time. It took awhile to start to catch on to what was going on and a girl sitting in front of us filled us in on some of the rules and game play. Loved, loved, loved the girls names like Bloody Mary and Physco Babble. It was however not near as aggressive as I thought it would be but there was some pushing and shoving. I gave some thought to what it would be like to try it, always looking for the next challenge you know. I’m pretty sure my old body couldn’t take the falling and skidding across the floor not to mention the fact that I’m not that good on skates. There was a time in my life when I thought of myself as a little bit wild and rebellious, which I think, would fit right in with the roller girl image, and hey I have a couple of tattoos that I could make bigger. Anyway it did get me to thinking that if I had to give up running and triathlons what would I want to do in its place. What hobby would I pick up? Is there another sport I would like to give a try? Softball? Tennis? I just don't know.
What about you?
If not this what?
