The roller derby dreams have gone on hiatus - not by choice, mind you - but because I managed to fall and twist my ankle in the midst of my third practice. And it wasn't even a cool crash incident... I feel while just STANDING on skates! They were 2 sizes too big (stupid other newbie took the ones that fit me), and I wasn't wearing my ankle brace, but that doesn't make it hurt any less. :)
Crutches for a week, hobbling around like one leg is shorter than the other for a couple more weeks, and I should be back on skates (or at least at practice!) in February.
Wish me luck! (And remind me to wear my brace!)
