One of the things I really love about sports is just the family aspect of having other people going through the same stuff that you’re going through. We’re all going for the same goal, and then on top of being on the sports teams though, going through the same things in life now since I’m having to deal with an injury, and all these people have already been through the injury. So, going out to travel with them, seeing how they get around, stuff like that, that was something I liked. And so getting back involved with sports, that was one thing that helped me, but then being part of the team, and competing, and just getting out all the energy and physical stuff that I like to get out. Because I mean I like rugby because it’s a team sport, but I like racing because it’s an individual sport. So I don’t have to listen to everybody keep bitching and stuff on the team sport like I do during rugby season, and then I can go out, and do racing and that’s all on me, so.
