The traveling tour is over but I still have a jam packed time the next two weeks. I've got three big presentations in Saint Louis and then I also have some traveling across the state presenting to schools.
This drive home has been hard as it was 10 years ago today I was making this same drive home from being a race car driver instructor in Vegas. I had so much hope back then that the drive would be the first of many that would see me driving across the country racing in front of thousands. Obviously, that didn't happen but on this drive that sense of hope, or the remnants of it, have been stirred up.
Don't get me wrong, this new race I'm in is much more important and it feels so odd to be on this road with similar feelings yet 10 years apart. Right now I have that same feeling I had 10 years ago in that I hope this isn't my last trip. This month I spoke to over 7,500 people which I think is an incredible feat and I hope I can do this again. Even though I have all these events planned coming up, in a way, I'm afraid this drive home will be an end instead of just the closing of one chapter.
