I've spent this past week recovering from a whirlwind trip down to Daytona for the Daytona 500. A friend of mine had two guests going down for the race, but he had a last minute emergency so I told him I'd go down to make sure they had a great Daytona 500 experience!
I spent the day with Karen and Len, they both work in USA Track and Field and were thrilled to go behind the scenes of a different kind of racing.
They got to sign the start/finish line (which I think was a great idea on the tracks part), and rode around in the pace car!
It was a great weekend, and I was able to spend some time catching up with old co-workers and friends. I even ran into some of the guys from the Drive for Diversity Crew Member Program, they make me look small!
