American Indoor Karting

I've been at Eagle for 3 years now and often have appearances at businesses on weekends. I have never once convinced Brian to go with me to one until last weekend when I told him I had to go to American Indoor Karting. Suddenly he was all about going to a roadshow with me...gee I wonder why?!

I expected him to race while I worked but that didn't go as planned...he wanted to race me. Now, on the highway I have a bit of a lead foot but for some reason that has never carried over to bumper cars or go karts. I don't know what it is, maybe inhaling all the exhaust turns me into a slow poke.

So out of love for my husband I put on the rental shoes...one didn't even have laces (I say that's a handicap right?!)


And the head sock, helmet and neck brace...


And got ready to race...


I was doing ok for the first lap or so but Brian was nicely tagging along behind me and I knew he was probably itching to go a little faster so I waved him to pass me.


And boy did he. Before I knew it, he was out of sight and it was me alone on the track. Not so fun. So I was just puttering along until I realized he was about to lap me! I tried to speed up but he just flew by and I figured well, I might as well go back to puttering along. Then I got lapped...again!

I am now the laughing stock of American Indoor Karting. Oh well, we still had a good time :)
