Do you have a derby hero?
It's hard to keep up with all the amazing, talented folks in the derby-verse. However, I always love to watch Miracle Whips skate, so elegant!

It is absolutely frightening to lace up your skates for the first time.. It's also totally badass.
Anything else to tell us?
Before roller derby, I had never played team sports (that weren't a mandatory part of gym class). I get it now, the community among the league, officials and volunteers is welcoming and supportive. The relationships I have built with my teammates are some of the strongest I have. Derby love is real.
