Oh Derby How I’ve MIssed Thee….

Let me count the ways….

1. The comraderie.
2. The new family
3. The challenge
4. The burning in my thighs
5. The pain in my lower back
6. Being out of breath
7. Plow stops
8. The sweaty gear stink
9. The encouragement
10. Watching someone learn something new
11. 27 in 5
12. The endorphins
13. Crossovers
14. Knowing that even 8 months off skates my skills didn’t disappear.

I have really missed derby in only one way.  All of it.

Derby rocks.   I love the philosophy of my new team, the coach is awesome, and the fresh meat and seasoned players are all friendly and inclusive.

Derby freaking rocks.

I’ve missed derby… I’ve missed the fire and desire I have for derby.  I found it again tonight.
