You Can't Roller Skate In a Buffalo Herd

Yesterday evening a group of us decided to go check out some live Roller Derby action in Phoenix. There’s a first time for everything and with the potential to see all that Brawn and Beauty first hand, I was pretty excited; we were in store for a double-header. The first match pitted the AZ Derby Dames Hot Shots against the LA Derby Dolls Fight Crew. It was a blow out. The Hot Shots were simply outclassed. Next up was the Brutal Beauties vs. Runaway Brides. Again, it wasn’t much of a contest; the Runaway Brides ran away with it…In the end, there was definitely a lot more Braun than Beauty and a desperate need for some skating lessons. Nevertheless, it was still thoroughly entertaining. How could it not be when the girls had names like: Craven Cadavers, Hell Hussy, Karma Knockside, Vulvarine, Killin Mae’ Smalls, Deja Déjà Vu, Hilary Skank, and Trixie Biscuit. Not to mention the guy in the seat next to me who declared himself the biggest piece of white trash there and provided us with one-liner gems all night. Here’s a piece of the action:

 On a side note, I was back on the track Saturday morning for a nice dose of some longer intervals (1600, 1200, 1000). The stuff that always makes me suffer, even when I am fit! It was really windy out, so of course the fat kid had to break the wind for the girls on each lap…I was still really happy with how things went though. If you had told me I’d be working out on the track right now a month ago, I wouldn’t have believed it! Also, I broke 30 seconds for a warm-up 200m which is the fastest I’ve gone in a really long time. I was proud of myself.
This morning saw a group of us meet down at ASU to hit the trails for a long run. I made it 48 minutes straight and 58 total. Easily the most I’ve done so far and my body responded pretty well, especially after yesterday. We stopped by the Coney Island Café afterward for a nice breakfast/brunch…time for a nap!
