The Daytona 500

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!
I can't believe another race season is here, and I can't believe it's already March 1st! It's my birthday month, and I'm slightly panicking at the thought of turning 24...
