Walking for Diabetes Research

Lynn reporting to you again from Texas Motor Speedway. This morning, before the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series race, I participated in the NASCAR Fitness Challenge sponsored by Lilly Diabetes. It was awesome to walk for a good cause and actually get a good view from on the track. You don’t realize how big it is until you get down on it and actually look up. Here’s some pics.

And here’s something you just do not see on TV. This is how steeply banked the turns are. I took this of my feet in turn 1. See the height difference in my feet? Yeah, the grade is that steep. You sure feel it.

Anyway, I’m back home as of the time of this post going up (intended for it to be this morning but didn’t have adequate bandwidth to upload the photos) after watching Stewart-Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick win an overtime thriller of a race. Hope to get back to your regularly scheduled programming tomorrow, hopefully with what was supposed to be this week’s SLS submission. For now, I need some sleep before I go back to prison (ahem) I mean work tomorrow.

Catch you soon!
