Lots of Roller Rink Limbo when I was a kid, but for Derby: January 2017

Derby name and number
All I knew in choosing a derby name, was that it needed to represent an alter-ego for me, a newer, stronger, more sturdy version of me. I came to derby with a lot of changes in my life and what felt like a lot of weight on my shoulders, so I wanted to go with the idea of Death. Ancient lore and mythology represent death as a part of the cyclic nature of life and a chance to start over, begin again. I liked that. The Doctor part came later as a natural mesh of my derby and professional life. But really, there’s nothing quite like walking into a room of strong athletes and being applauded as “DEATH!!” to give you a renewed sense of badassery. The number 10 is a part of the medical code for “instantaneous death”, so it was something to aim for on the track.
Off the Track
