End of Season post! B Champs for @ratcityrollerderby Rain of Terror in Dallas was a wild ride with way too many feelings for one weekend 🍷🌮 but we had delicious queso many times.
Really great time with my ORCA POD especially when there was blood in the water. 🐋
Met some wonderful folk from other places and was sufficiently horrified by shoe-y (thanks Jack from Victoria and @bentoboxer 👍) .
Many thanks to @s1rollerderby for keeping my head safe this season, to @frogmouthclothing for making our incredible uniforms that could be reversed on the bench 🙌, to @dallasderbydevils for hosting #gobigorgohome , the Zoolander-named reffing crews, the NSOs, the announcers and DJs (who even played requests!), photographers, medics, and ESPECIALLY the massage therapists.
Big shout out to Advanced Manual Therapy, especially Reshmi and Dustin, who kept me moving through the end of the year.

Never would have guessed when we skated together in the @southsearollerderby Banshees or against each other in the Black and Blue bouts in 2016 that two years later we’d be playing together in an international grand final in Texas for @victorianrollerderbyleague Queen Bees!!! @gettingtherouxthis you’re a brilliant skater, opponent, and best of all teammate! WE GOT THIS! #gobigorgohome2018#bchamps2018 📸 by @modernwarfare04 and @mirandaskatemayle
Ouch that looked like it hurt... 🤕😔
She should go see @syd_mowery and her crew of License Massage Therapist to work out those kinks. 💆

The announcers have been saying “Lead Change” more than any other phrase this first half as @tamparollerderby and @ratcityrollerderby battle for every point! If you haven’t already, tune into the action at wftda.tv/live/go-big-or-go-home/
Great first day with the team in #Dallas ! Went to the arts district, good a food truck gathering (got #pumpkin grilled cheese 💕🍴) , went. Through the @dallasmuseumart and cried a bit (and saw a chair for a cat), then got some @stupidgoodcoffee in a beaker! Seriously though it was intense pour over. So good. Tomorrow up early for game 1 of #bchamps2018 ! .

Today marks 6 months since I broke my leg. I started PT about 3 months in when I was cleared to bear weight. I just had my 29th PT visit today. I am now down to 1 time a week with PT. I still have a lot of work to do. I can definitely feel my leg getting stronger, but it just isn't anywhere near where it was this time last year. I am very proud of the work I put in towards my recovery. I told myself that no matter how hard things got, I wasn't going to allow this injury to break me mentally and I have done a damn good job of staying true to that. Of course some days are difficult and I do beat myself up from time to time, but then I remember how bad my injury was. I let my team know today that I would not be on the track with them for B Champs next month. We all pretty much knew it was trying to make the impossible possible and nobody truly expected me to be able to skate competitively in 6 months! I am just happy to say I did all that I could. I will eventually be back on the track with them, but these muscles need some time to rebuild ;). #unbeatable#roadtorecovery#brokenlegchronicles#countdowntocontact#physicaltherapy#orthopedicsurgery#6months#oneofmyfavoritequotes#conormcgregor#tamparollerderby#bruisecrew#bruisecruise ⛴️ #bchamps2018#bchamps#gobigogohome2018#tacotacotaco
