Melody Kool was born on September of 2010 when I got brave enough to go to my first roller derby training. I discovered this sport about a year before when I went to watch a friend play. I grew up roller skating and loved it. Little did I know that it could be a sport that I could learn. Mind you I was terrible at everything except swimming and even then was to timid to compete.
I wa alreedy 49 when I became a part of the sport and I have to work very hard to keep up with the 20 to 30 year old players. I am determined to get as good as I can even if I can’t make a public competing team. I’m still trying and am going to my first bootcamp in
Regardless of how things go I plan to skate right into the next life. I had to find the motivation to get up off the couch and get into shape and this is how I am doing it. I am in the best shape since my early 30’s. I have discovered it is never to late to start. I have had set backs with some injurys and watching some many pass me by but I will not give up!
