1, Wake up
2, wonder if I really want to go.
3, find ten things to do OTHER than go ride/race
4, finally decide to load up and go
5, Get a Starbucks venti iced Americano
6, realize you left your snacks at home
7, road rage, because you left your snacks at home.
8, get to the track and try to look cool even though you're hung over.
9, Do (3) site laps.
10, complain about arm pump for 45 minutes
11, tell your friends you're going to take pics and you're going to join them next moto.
