Quick Chat with Stacey

Know her story and her passion for roller skating

Miss Runner: What motivated you to start this awesome team and bring the idea to life?
Stacey Short: RollerFit was created from my love for Roller Sports.  I had a vision of growing skating again, however I wanted to be able to offer it as an alternative way for people to stay active and exercise their body and mind in a non-competitive environment. Roller sports is not only great for your overall health but it's also so much fun and I wanted to be able to share this with my community thus RollerFit was then born :) 

MR: Out of so many sports, why roller skating?
SS:Roller skating is a combination of strength, creativity, technique and grace which is just a few reasons why love this sports. Although I had fun playing some team sports with my friends growing up, I found Roller Skating allowed me to be myself, it has always been a  creative outlet whilst also giving me and over all work out. With so many disciplines within this sport, it has forever exercised, not only my body but also my mind!  I have been skating since I was 5 years old and I am still learning and because it is so creative and can be so technical I know I'll never stop learning. About 2 years ago,  I started to learn to dance on Roller Skates and I am loving how challenging it is.  It makes me feel alive!  

MRWhat do you do when you aren't skating?
SS
It's a tough question as I am almost always skating (haha). However you will find me in the kitchen, hula hooping, swimming at the beach or trying to run, I am not a runner but I am working on it at the moment!  


MR: How many pairs of roller skates do you have? Which is your favourite pair and why?
SS:  I get asked this all the time and people are always disappointed when I say I only have 3 pairs (haha). They're all specific to a certain style of Roller Skating so I love them all ! However my go to pair that I can use for almost everything is my Moxi Roller Skate Boots, Roll-line Plates and Bones Bearings plus a mix of these 3 brands for wheels. There are so many reasons why I love this set up and I am a skate gear nerd so I won't go into all the nerdy details but lets just say  Moxi Skates are soooooo dam awesome, so pretty and so comfy and I love what the brand stands for! Oh and a side note to this, RollerFit now has 250 pairs of skates of 7 venue :) so some would say I own 253 pairs.  

MRApparently you're also a foodie! Can you share with us your favourite healthy recipe?
SS: Where do I start!  I love food.  I am even eating while I write this!  This delicious recipe is so easy and you'll be wondering why you didn't make it earlier. Takes no longer then 20mins. Perfect for week night dinners.
