2 weeks of bouts … crammed into 1 post

Way, way, waaaay behind. Apologies for the lack of updates, I was sidelined in the ER, went to a funeral, began set-up for a local artist exhibition next month, landed an assistant director gig for a summer shoot and got a dirt bike. I also fell in love. With my dirt bike. For reals.

I’m not the only one with a ton going on, derby teams throughout New England have been bouting, scrimmaging, promoting and selling out like crazy!
