This is me, shortly before departing for Indianapolis in the wee hours of the morning… Okay, so 9:30 in the morning is not “wee” but it feels that way sometimes when I actually have to get up and get moving on a Sunday morning! I would usually be leaving for practice at about the same time, but I don’t have to get all that presentable to go get sweaty (sorry guys)!
But today! Today, 14 of our skaters were headed to Indianapolis to scrimmage with some of the Naptown Roller Girls. It’s the first time that our team has skated against another team, so it was super exciting! They pretty much wiped the floor with us, but that’s okay. We walked away having learned a LOT, having a new set of things to work on, etc.
Then it was time to turn around and drive three hours back home. All in all, it was a very good day! I got to spend 6 hours in the car with some of my favorite ladies and enough snacks to make you wonder do diet pills work? Not that bad, but we did have an entire seat dedicated to the food, and I did eat more cookies than advisable…
Ooh, and I almost forgot! They needed volunteers and pretty much none of ours came along to Indy so I jumped in and got to NSO for the first scrimmage (one of Naptown’s other teams played Demo City before our scrimmage). It was fun and now I know what to do for at least one NSO position at a bout if anyone needs help!
