Name: Lee Ann
Position: Shaky at the best of times and often bringing up the rear but I'm happy to be counted as a team member no matter what I'm doing.
Derby DOB: Jan 2017
Likes: I love intelligent conversation. I love reading, art, music, creative writing and stand up comedy that doesn't rely on tearing others down. I have a not so secret crush on Ellen. I am an avid people watcher and could sit and watch them all day and never get bored. I absolutely love thunder storms.
Dislikes: Mean people. Gossip. Unread books.
Why derby: When I saw the ad for joining this team I was immediately interested but my first thought was "I'm too old and too out of shape for that" but my second thought was "screw it, I'm doing it even if it kills me". I'm so glad I did because the ladies have been wonderful and even though I have worked very hard to "kill myself" I keep coming back for more. I consider it one of the better decisions I have made in my life.
Derby goals: Not to look at my feet/floor while skating. A wise woman said "Don't look at the floor, it isn't going anywhere". I need to trust myself more. I have fallen enough times now, and gotten back up, that I know it's not the worst thing in the world to fall so I need to be willing to go for it and stop arguing with gravity.
