Ahhh! I can now breathe. The 2008 Season is over. I had a great year and finished 2nd in the Championship. Martin on the other hand had a rough year. He finished well when he finished. Taking anywhere from 1st to 5th place out of about 35 cars. But when he didn't finish he went out with a bang. We aren't talking a small bang, more like an explosion. This didn't do well for my psyche when I would come around a turn and see my husbands car in pieces. Thankfully he was able to walk away from all the crashes. All our bad luck is behind us and we will do better next year.
I had to post this picture because I love how I am in front of him. It is rare for me to be in front of my husband and I usually don't stay there long because I end up driving, staring in my mirrors and make some foolish mistake. He then passes me and never looks back. This is the difference between a husband and a wife. The wife feels bad and worries about the husband, and the husband takes off and doesn't know where his wife is or really care during that moment.
So, as I took the stage to accept my 2nd place year end trophy, being the only female on the track I had to ask the men a question. "What ever happened to the days of ladies first?"
The men I race against make me earn everything out there on the track, including my husband!
