90 minutes later and finishing the last lap
     We just returned from Austin after attending our first Formula 1 race, and yes, I really enjoyed myself despite the almost 90 degree temperatures (whut?).  Somehow my husband turned me onto racing.  Not that I haven't always been a fan of fast, pretty cars but the thought of watching a race (The Fast and the Furious 1, 2, & 3 do not count) has never stepped into the forefront of my mind until Bryan became interested in autocrossing about a year ago. It's nice for us to add another common point of interest to talk about- his bromance with the drivers, how I need to make sure the Japanese Grand Prix finishes downloading on his computer, what new tires he wants for Christmas... ahhh yes, and so I welcome our newfound hobby with open arms.
