Visualization at the empty grid prior to the event is powerful home field advantage.
Why am I here? I love this adrenaline. I love this sport. I already have the ring and Tee shirt, so truly I'm here to have fun and enjoy such a wonderful event and powerful group of women.
In the end, after all is said and done, the events over, it's our friends and family that make sanity out of the insanity!!!
For example, After 30 years, my favorite HS Geometry teacher-- Mr. DiGiovanni-- and I reconnected for lunch in LV prior to the Championships.
In the end, I am constantly reminded, winning is not always about being the best in the World, but our investment in others that cross our paths! There's no ring from great memories, no Tee shirt for silent investments in others lives-- manner a fact, Mr. D's selfless investment in my life has made me a better person. His belief helped me find my brilliance, and now downstream his selfless deeds are impacting thousands!
