I was a National speed skater from the age of 8 to 15 yrs. Old. I went to National for individual competition and for 2 Lady relays with BeBe Brewski. I have traveled all over the United States for roller skating. I must say it is great to be back on skates and have old speed skaters on my team like BeBe Brewski, Ragin Reg, Jamn Jewlz. Many other speed skaters out there from back in the day. All of us doing Roller Derby it’s truly amazing!
