ROLLER DERBY WORLD CUP was happening in Dallas, Texas this weekend.
And I was playing for Team Norway
I had a wonderful time, we learned a lot, and Team Norway got on 16th place out of 32 teams. That means we are in the top half of the world!!!
It was a FUN and hard fought weekend.
Here is a VIDEO from our game agains Team USA. We lost tremendously(!) 854-6 to be exact. However, we are extremely proud of those 6 points. Here I was passed the jammer penny and actually made it out of the pack. Though no points were scored in this video, it’s a huge deal just to get out of the pack against Team USA.
It is National Diabetes Day and I’m feeling a little torn….
We are wearing blue, we are posting pictures on social media, and we are planning get togethers with friends and families also living with Type 1, celebrating with ice cream, on my daughter’s request.
Why are we CELEBRATING a disease?
I am celebrating the Diabetes COMMUNITY, the CONNECTION, and the AWARENESS we are making on this day.
The FRIENDS I have made, the FRIENDS my daughter has made. This thing certainly would have been a lot harder to tackle was it not for all of them.
I am also secretly CELEBRATING a CURE! Though there is none [yet] we are closer to a CURE today than we were last year!
So HAPPY DIABETES DAY, Everybody!
