I’ve always been a cautious driver. I’ve never had a ticket, and have never been pulled over for speeding. So I guess it shouldn’t surprise anyone that I was not exactly a pro at the Malibu Grand Prix when I was out in San Jose with YesVideo last month.

Honestly, I was excited to let loose and drive as fast as I could for once. I enjoyed putting my foot down on the gas pedal and letting my hair blow in the wind (that’s only figurative….my hair was completely covered by a clonky helmet). Basically, I had a blast doing something I never have a chance to do.

I think all of us in our little racing group had a blast. I felt like I was flying around some of those corners. It wasn’t until our track time was over that we all discovered that our friends on the sidelines were laughing hysterically at us as we appeared to crawl through the course. What felt like racing to us looked like pedal-powered go-carts to everyone else.

I’m just glad that the Winkelvoss twins of Facebook fame didn’t stick around to watch us. Yes, they were in the group directly ahead of us, and they….well, they drove a little faster than us.

After trying our hands at race car driving, we had a chance to test our skills in the batting cages and on some monster trampolines. I fear that I failed even worse at those.

The beauty of the day, though? Despite being one of the world’s slowest race car drivers, a shy batter, and an out-of-shape trampoline jumper, I had a blast. Why? Because of the people I was with, of course.

We ended the day’s activities with something that I truly AM a pro at…eating ice cream. And laughing at ridiculous tweets. Ah, yes. This is my world.
