  • What the doctor ordered
    on Sep 6, 2010 in nutrition health
    Today is my birthday. I don't typically make a big deal out of this day. I come from a small family so, growing up, celebratory gatherings were pretty quiet ... bordering sometimes on comatose (can you even call four people a "gathering"?) Rather tha...
  • Out of balance
    on Sep 3, 2010
    I can't believe it's been about a month since I last posted. So much has gone on in that month but most of it, unfortunately is unrelated to derby. Through a former coworker I found a great, contract job. It's only supposed to last until the end of N...
  • Crickets chirping
    on Aug 3, 2010
    I know ... that's what you've heard from this blog for a little while now. Truthfully, I've hard the same in my life in general, since getting laid off from my job. I've missed a few derby practices as a result of getting pretty down in the dumps abo...
  • Getting hit (in more ways than one)
    on Jul 18, 2010 in contact hits endurance
    Funny how you can get such good news and such bad news all in the same week. No sooner had I gotten the good news that I had been cleared for contact when, two days later, I got laid off from the job I've held for almost 10 years. I had seen it comin...
  • Movin' on up
    on Jul 11, 2010 in level 1 skills
    Tonight's practice for the non-contact folk was to be only one hour. This bummed me out a bit, since I'm looking to get more time on skates not less. We did a lot of drills I had done in my first few weeks with the league which was good. I got to see...
  • Guess I'm "old meat"
    on Jul 1, 2010
    It's been a while since I've posted. Mostly because not much has happened in the world of derby that's new and interesting. I've only had two practices since the night I was assessed, as our Father's Day practice was cancelled at the last minute. Dur...
  • Gazpacho
    on Jun 22, 2010
    New recipe posted. As the days get hotter I sometimes find my appetite waning. On really scorching days I automatically crave foods that are cold and loaded with water. This chilled soup lets uber fresh produce take the stage and it really ...
  • Stress, roadblocks and disappointment
    on Jun 18, 2010 in yoga level 1 school
    It's been a rough couple of weeks at home, at work, at school and in derby. The overall theme has been stress, roadblocks and disappointment. Here's how it all played out:Tuesday - I received some bad news that will have a huge impact on my personal...
  • 9 weeks in
    on Jun 7, 2010 in speed fitness endurance
    I'm starting to see improvement every time I skate. Right now we're still in the midst of a week of endurance practices. Last night was killer, as endurance usually is. As I mentioned in my last post, as torturous as it feels at the time I continue t...
  • Love and Hate
    on Jun 2, 2010 in fitness endurance
    I have a love/hate relationship with endurance practices. I hate it while we're doing it. It's fine at first, but as we continue it feels more and more like torture. And just when I think I can't possibly go any further, we're only about halfway thro...
