    Jessticular Fortitude: Where are you originally from?

    Incredible Hull by Daniel Whitaker

    Incredible Hull: Asheville, NC

    jf: How did you first get involved in roller derby?

    Hull: A friend found a new local team online and I decided to check it out to see what it was all about.

    jf: What is your pre-derby sports/skating background?

    Incredible Hull by Daniel Whitaker

    Hull: I used to do performance dance skating when I was a teenager. I started with a brand new league in Clarksville, TN and fell in love.

    jf: How did you pick your derby name?

    Hull: My real name is Heather Hull, so the Incredible Hull seemed like a clever idea. 718 is my birthday July 18.

    jf: What’s the hardest part of being a rollergirl?

    Incredible Hull by John Organ

    Hull: The mental game! I am always in a battle with myself to be a stronger skater and no matter how long you skate, a lot of times you struggle to communicate fast enough to your teammates, to make the best decisions in the moment for your jammer, and just in general makes stupid penalty and rules mistakes over and over.

    jf: How has your involvement in roller derby affected the way you live the rest of your life?

    Hull: I'm so passionate about it. I was out of it for a broken ankle and then when I got pregnant and realized I NEED it!! It's my therapy, so I am a better person to the people around me when I'm skating. Lol

    jf: How do you find a balance between your derby life and your “real” life?

    Incredible Hull by Daniel Whitaker

    Hull: It's a huge commitment that can't be taken lightly. If you want it, you just have to make it work with your Office and "being a parent" schedule.

    jf: Do you have a pre-bout ritual?

    Hull: I actually have to push everything out of my mind during warm ups because I get nervous every single game. I play better under pressure, so I can't over think it or I'll get out there and completely go blank like stage fright.

    jf: What things do you do outside of practice to stay healthy?

    Incredible Hull by John Organ

    Hull: Zumba and kettle bell are my two favorites outside of derby. I drink plenty of water, eat lots of protein, and take supplements

    jf: What advice do you have for girls who want to join roller derby?

    Hull: This sport is not for the people who want to just dress up and look cute. The mental, physical and time commitment is huge. If you want it, chase it, and never give up on yourself.
