Play hard, crash hard !

Save your arse
I haven't fallen hard on it yet. The only time, my delicate bottom reached the ground was during fall exercises. I always make sure I carefully lower it down and bounce back up as fast as I can in order to avoid that disagreeable encounter between my bones and any hard floor surfaces.

In spite of my extreme caution, I can feel a little pain at times, so I can only imagine how painful it would be to fall in a less contolled manner. Therefore, I decided to give my bum the respect and care it deserves by buying it a pad.

I did a bit of research and read some reviews and found the Crash Pad rated very well for roller derby.
