How did you get involved with roller derby?: I heard that a friend of mine was joining the team and I couldn't resist the opportunity to join with her.
How did you choose your derby name?: Coming up with a name I liked was probably harder than passing assessments! I really wanted to play on my first name, Carmen, but there were already a plethora of registered Carmen somethings that I had to start thinking in a different direction. Randomly, in middle of bowling, ReoCurran Nightmare (playing on my last name) came to me, and I loved it.
Pre-Derby Sports Background: Speed skating, cycling, and softball
Off Skates Workouts: plyometrics, weight training, and a variety of cardio workouts
Best Fresh Meat Moment: Finding out that the Grannies snuck a photo of me during the one leg balance part of assessments because I looked like a "trophy topper". lol
Favorite Derby Moment: So far, getting lead jammer for the first time in my first bout and hearing the announcer say my name...it was extra cool because it was in the Savannah Civic Center!
Likes: any type of skating, cycling, mini golf, football, the beach, walking my dog, spending time with family and friends, pizza, breakfast, the occasional adult beverage, and sleep
Dislikes: drama, people who don't think before they talk, bad drivers, olives, & ketchup
Derby Heroes: the Grannies on my team, Racer McChaseHer, & Atomatrix
