I'm going to start writing these appreciations of some skaters that I never got to get bios from.

Just Dash profile

Real Name: 

What is the origin of your derby name and number? 

Just Dash was a joke from my first league. I was rostered to bout but still didn't have a skater name, so they put a "-" mark in the name column. Someone jokingly said "you're Dash" and it stuck. My original number was K2, which was from my family. My sister and brother are also K names, so in family notes my Mom referred to us as K1, K2 (me) and K3. It changed when letters were removed from numbers to a countdown of 321.

What did you do athletically before you got into derby? 
A little bit of everything growing up. Downhill skiing, swim team, soccer, basketball, cross country running, tennis, water skiing, volleyball.... Mostly competitive horse back riding, show jumping for close to 10 years. I love the outdoors and variety. Currently practice yoga, hike & backpack, ski & snowboard, rock climb - bouldering, and occasionally just run.

what's the deal?

So things have been pretty quiet here (and at my other blog) and there's a reason for that.  I've decided to scale back writing on the blog so I can concentrate on writing my books.  I found I was just writing to have something to post, and that's not what I wanted this blog to be about.  I look back on last month, and there's several ideas for me to write about, and yet it felt like I was just going over the same things.  Hence the decision to slow down here a bit.
