No, this is not going to be a long read, even though 7+ years has a lot of derby, derby-firsts, personal-firsts, highs, lows and gear. Loads of gear.
So why isn't it loads of words then? Because I'm not a writer. I'm actually more of a talker, as you might know ;)
So I'm a talker and I want to tell you about everything I found in derby and found out about derby, and learned from derby.
I learned that I am part of derby, one of the many parts of derby that make derby, derby.
There are parts that know all about setting up a major event, there are parts that know everything about how to train and what strategies to use. There are parts that are about connecting and getting people together. There are parts that skate, skate, skate and skate some more. There are parts that are silent, in the background, working on supporting systems for their league. There are parts that are supporting, loudly, in your face, every game. There are parts that get shit done. And there are parts that know everything there is to know about gear.
And that's me. I am that part of derby.
And I want to share the benefits of that part with you.
So that's why I'm going to write, even though I'm not a writer. I want to share what I know most about, with you, the reader. I will also share more about the parts of derby that I work closely together with, in some of my future blogs.
And you can find all that here. :)
