Today I woke up to our annual tradition of the White Elephant gift exchange here at the USAC CX Devo Block 3. This year marks the fifth consecutive year that I have attended the European racing block over Christmas break. It's the fifth Christmas that I have missed with my family, which can never be replaced. And with that super down-er note I’d like to add that there is something a lot nicer about being here this year. I feel a lot more at peace being here this Christmas season. I think this is due to several different things.
