4 Years Later…
It’s been four years this month since I joined the Tiger Bay Brawlers at their inception and started skating; it’s been a white knuckle ride, so I thought I would resurrect this blog to reflect on that time.
"Practice does not make perfect, practice makes permanent - so perfect practice is important."
Joe from the gym. It’s not his quote, but he didn’t give me a name. And I think he added his own bit on the end. It’s good.
This is my fitblr
I love this! Safe fitspo :)
You are not a machine.
The clear pee one has me on the floor!
Fuck fitspo, be healthy.
Derby takes a lot out of us, know when you should rest and reset your body. I’ve seen too many people get hurt because they were tired and didn’t realize they were unsafe.
I like these, but how about we all stop trying to tell each other what’s best and just do what we want?
Oh I just…oh.

Tiger Bay played Crime City Rollers (Mälmo) on Saturday; I didn’t make the A team charter this quarter, so I amused myself with my camera instead.
I recently designed a logo for the Jamazons, a team in the Peterborough Roller Derby League, Ontario. This past weekend they played the season opener in their new kit!
I love derby, so when Hilary - who used to skate with the Brawlers back home in Cardiff - asked if I’d be interested in designing a logo for her team I jumped at the chance.
It’s pretty amazing to see a whole team wearing the finished product!

Look at the worldwide Brawler family go!

Phew!
