happy one year.
It has been one year since I joined the Rocktown Rollers! This is definitely one of those situations where it feels like I’ve been doing this forever and at the same time feels like I just joined.
On Sunday we had our Fresh Meat Try Outs. This is the fourth Fresh Meat Try Outs that have happened since I joined last January, but there was something different about going through the introductions and stepping routine this time. Comparing where I was last year at this time to now is kind of mind blowing. You can read about my Fresh Meat Try Outs here.
This year I introduced myself as Clarissa Pains It All.
This year I didn’t feel like I was going to die after doing lunges across the track.
This year I got to scrimmage while the Fresh Meat watched.
A lot has happened in the last year both on and off the track. I have met some of the most wonderful people through this sport and have done things I never imagined I’d be able to. I’m even more excited and determined today than I was a year ago. I have a really good feeling about 2012 and the Rocktown Rollers.
Please enjoy a few of my favorite photos from the year.
