Question(Q): Besides the basic, mandatory gear, what is the one thing in your bag you cannot skate without?

Mayhem(A): Hmm… well as you can see I have a lot in my bag and to me, it is all needed or I wouldn’t lug around this ginormous thing LOL but I guess my KT tape is something I cannot (or should not) skate without; it really does support the knee and without it I can tell a difference for sure.

 

(Q): Besides the basic, mandatory gear, what is something you think every skater should have in their bag?

(A): Duct tape and extra laces

 

(Q): What is the strangest, or most off the wall, thing you have in your bag and what is the story behind it?

(A): Ha! This roller derby doll. Isn’t it awesome yet creepy?! LOL. I got it in South Bend at a roller derby bout. It was our teams first away game and my first bout coaching while recovering from my first knee surgery. My ex-husband (husband at the time) said it looked more badass than the girlie, green, frog themed one I picked out (Which funny, happens to be the one I lost). I have had it in my derby bag since 2011 as reminder I am badass and can come back from my major knee destruction!
