What: By night, Menace (Petrini’s alter ego) skates as a blocker for the Richmond Wrecking Belles team in the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls league. Single, without children, she also volunteers her time as manager of public relations for the league. By day, she works in public relations for a film studio in Berkeley.
When: Bouts take place between January and August, or longer if the Wrecking Belles go to the championships. Besides practicing on skates four times a week, Menace also runs Lake Merritt, climbs the Cleveland Cascade steps, does speed work on a high school track and manages to work in strength training, too.
