Slice n' Dice

If you are going to be an awful skater I highly recommend getting a pair of skates that make you look like a really good skater! I ventured out to my first Derby Lite class this evening and donned this hip pair of Riedell Quad Speed Skates for my maiden roller derby voyage. While I was anything but graceful, I have to admit things went better than I expected. I was totally comforted by the group of women in the room; they range in age and fitness level and a few of them were just as clueless as me. We learned how to fall and I am a really good faller. We learned how to get up and I am working on doing that faster. We learned out to stop and stand still and I can now happily do both of those things without falling. I still have some anxiety issues I need to work through, but I think I am really in the process of learning to trust my body all over again. Slice n' Dice simply can't wait to go back.
