What's In My (Derby) Bag: Gram Crack Her
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?
GCH: Jammer straps. They keep my skates in place.
