Flash Bo Dash Roller Derby Blog

In the words of Nike “Just do it”!

Hi, my name is Flash Bo-Dash and I’m a Roller derby girl and recovering procrastinator.

My last Blog was for Roller Derby UK in June 2013 and I am (still) a Roller Derby holic.

There, I’ve done it. Broken the seal, dipped my toe in the water, started my journey again into the world of blogging, journalism or what I like to call it, brain dumping for whoever wants to read it!

In the past I’ve written for the guys here at Roller Derby UK about popping my first bout cherry, Derby Sponges, Gummy worm mouthguards and an array of interesting facts that I’d picked up on my journey into the world of Derby from a Rookies perspective. This came in the form of 20 or so blogs which started over a year ago (that you can recap for your amusement should you wish to and have a spare hour or so inbetween Derby!)

So by “Just doing it” (in this instance tapping the keys again for my first blog in nearly a year) the main thing that struck me as how much I’d changed and more importantly, how much track my skates had seen and the tales they could tell!

Being a photographer I am drawn to compare this thorough visual evidence so I will wrap things up here and say good luck to all those bouting this weekend (particularly in the next SW League games) and leave you with some pics of my skates and me ‘then’ and ‘now’

Proof that whatever it is ‘stuff happens’ in Derby!  ;p

Ta ta for now
