At noon, a train leaves Seattle for Portland while another train leaves Portland for Seattle. It takes one train 4 hours and the other 7 hours to make the trip. Both maintain constant speeds and travel along parallel tracks. If you were on one of those trains, what kind of refreshing beverage would you be drinking in the dining car?

Check out the the awesome things people said about Carmen Getsome:

“Her passion and enthusiasm for the sport of roller derby is an inspiration to us all.”

“She’s the bomb. I think this league relies on her a lot.”

“I vote for Carmen Getsome, because she not only is a leader and positive force on the track, but works her butt off getting the league training program up and running. She’s always ready and willing to do what it takes to get everyone motivated. She’s an outstanding member of our league!”

“Carmen does a lot for our league on the track. Sure, she’s a hot head, but that’s just passion.”

“Captaining two teams, wrangling training, AND helping to put on a fundraiser. Not to mention being an amazing skater and helping all of us with injury questions.”
