Tilted Thunder Rail Birds — Seattle All-Female Non-Profit Banked Track Roller Derby




Why did you join TTRB?
Saw a Rat City bout and had an "Ahhh!" moment. Couldn't stay in my seat and got the willies in my tummy and really wanted to try. But my age and my chicken butt, I never pursued it. Then, I was out randomly at the Seattle Center and a couple of fabulous girls came up to me with recruiting fliers and I thought "This is a sign and my chance to give it a shot!" And so I did it! It's turned out to be way more fabulous than I had ever thought. Even when it scares me to the bone! :)
How long have you been skating?
Since last October 2009. Before that, not since about the 6th grade.
What derby related injuries, if any, have you had?
Broken ankle
How has derby improved your life?
It’s starting to crack the huge shell I have around myself
What makes you happy?
Accomplishing something my head told me I couldn’t do.

Skulls-scary and cute, gargoyles, “fresh” summer fruits- actually there’s lots to list when I start thinking about it… :)

Funny thing, it’s almost always been red and purple and a lot of black!
