I've seen mention that at least two or three of you on here are doing roller derby, and I just started!

I thought it would be cool to start a thread for us to talk about our training/lifestyle/etc and all things derby!

I'll start, even though I'm super new:

I go to a casual training 1x per week right now, and hopefully moving up to 2x per week as we go (i discovered that there is a sunday session as well as a thursday!). Super fun!

My current process -- getting back on skates. I can go straight and turn left, as well as do cross-overs and the basic stance while skating, and i'm working on two different forms of stopping (T and also "snow plow"). I really just want to work on developing the basics.

I am also ordering my pads from the US -- because the prices are better.

How about you?
