Talk Derby… with Red Devil!

Meet Red Devil!! Phoot by Chris Switzer

I am a 42 year old who just joined the team recently. I was so excited to hear  of EDG and decided to give it a shot! I am a previous 80’s  speed skater and was concerned because of the extended length of time it’s been since I have skated. The girls are wonderful and I seem to fit in just fine. Surprisingly enough my skating skills seemed to come back to me and I seem to improve a little each time. Learning the game of derby will be new to me but I know it will be something I will love!

This has been such an exciting experience for me. Unfortunately the  last 2 years have been the hardest of my life being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40 losing my breasts along with 3 more surgeries. I never thought I would regain my strength, coordination and confidence back until I started to skate again and realized how much I have missed it. I am very thankful to have such a great group of people to skate with and am excited to be a part of the EDG team!
