Hey guys! Here i am again telling you how amazing roller derby is.
I thought i would start with a little fresh meat update.....I have almost nailed a crossover *fist pump* and am still totally loving my time spent on skates with some of the nicest people i've ever met.
I went to a bootcamp with the Rainy City Rollers and got to skate on their beautiful purple floor, they taught me so much and really helped my skating.
Ive been to watch a few bouts now....they make it look so easy! I wish it was!
Yesterday Whiptease, Rogue Beaver, Bexecute, Zedfer Zulu, Mean Bee, SpartaCursed and I all went to a bootcamp with the North Wales Roller Derby team, and i got to have a go in my first ever scrim. It was AMAZING! I mostly didnt have a clue what was going on and spent a lot of time getting knocked over or sent to the bin but oh my days it was such fun. I took a big hit from an amazing blocker, she knocked me flying and ouch my bum stil hurts but i got back up and even got a complement about my fat controller!
Anyway the aim of this blog is to tell you about a few of the benefits i have found since i started Roller Derby 3-4 months ago.
And now maybe some of the other things a newb should know....
Love and hip checks....Warzel

I've been asked to do a little blog about being 'fresh meat' so here I am!
I am in my early 30s, fat and hadn't done any exercise in years, so decided to give derby a go....having not put on a pair of skates in 16 years!
I was welcomed by everyone and they all really looked after me...what a lovely bunch of ladies they all are!
Week 1 i nearly died...well I thought I was going to vomit and pass out but I made it out alive just. Those pyramids are a killer, I could finally walk faster than a tortoise again 4 days later.
Week 2 I could at least talk without the fear of vomiting but I was worked hard.
The nicest thing is how wonderfully supportive everyone is, I've only been twice and already feel like part of the team.
I am now a total derby junkie, I LOVE it! Thanks Stoke City Rollers
