While I started out with butterflies in my stomach for the first few sessions on Saturday, I ended up really liking the track. I dropped at least 35 seconds (if not more...the lap timer beacon was gone for the last 2 sessions!) and I know that there is still TONS of room for improvement. If there's one thing that sticks in my mind about this track above all others - it's that there is lots of space for growth.
Overall, the weekend was a perfect end to the season. (Of course I wish the season didn't end, but I can't do much about that!) Thanks to Tom and Carol for 3 meals, to Stacy for lunch and letting us crash at her place on Sunday night, and to Steve and Dustin for helping plan the carpooling and driving situation.
(And who could forget Ron for his always-entertaining bar behavior. Was Amy her name?
And then there's the thanks to the CRs. You were all a HUGE help this weekend! Thanks Marshall, Paul, Melissa, Fred, Brent, Heath, Wink, Tony, and anyone else who rode with me and I'm forgetting to name. (What can I say...the members lucked out on this one and got lots of individual attention!) You each helped me improve in one way or another and I think it's safe to say the end result was amazing.
I'll miss everyone in the off-season and hope I get another chance to see you before I head off to Hong Kong next semester (January through May or June). It's been really amazing getting to know you all the past few months!
