After all the miles traveled, all of the beers consumed, the derby rules discussions, it wouldn’t have been done without the help of some amazing people:
Mike: for putting up with all of those nights away
CB: my travel companion and co-head
Mayor: my amazing derby hubby that pushes me and encourages me
AK: my derby daddy and mentor
Belle Isle: for all the the listening and support
HD & Robyn: for all of the Carpools and Room shares and letting me sleep it all off on your couch.
Stat Army: for knocking me down when I needed it, and for lifting me back up always!
The DDG League & BOD: for all of the support, financial or otherwise
The amazing NSOs and Refs in all the cities all over that have provided feedback and an ear to listen: Wishbone, Nora, Frak, Morgie, Stabby, Deadeye, Brawls, CRG, Kill C, Galvie, Parking Lot, Strong Female Character, Sod, Tofu, Travis, Intejill, Tootie, Hated, Jet & Bustah, and I am sure I am missing someone. So thank you! I couldn’t have done it without you!
