Welcome to another edition of What's In My (Derby) Bag! I don't know about you, but I'm always interested in what people carry around with them. Looking in someone's bag is kind of like taking a peek into who they are as a person. 

Today's guest is skater Gram Crack Her! A look through Gram's bag suggests she abides by the Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared.

What do you use most?

GCH: Protein bars -- I eat them all the time.

What's the strangest thing in your bag?

GCH: Make-up pads. They’re actually not for make-up, I have a spot on my skate that rubs so I tape a make-up pad in there and it prevents pain and blisters.

Name something in your bag that's not derby-related.

GCH: I think it's all pretty much derby-related!

What's been in there the longest?

GCH: Energy pills.

What's the weirdest thing that's ever been in there?

GCH: Right now I have a “Little Sis” bracelet I got from my “big sister” on my former team, the DuPage Derby Dames.

What's one thing in your bag that you can NOT live without?
