Re: How To Make It In A Male Dominated Racing

Yeah... I have to agree with George, and it seems that women making it all have that one thing in common... Shirley Muldowney, Danica Patrick, Mellissa Paris, etc... But it's good for the sport and it is encouraging more females to pursue racing.

oh... and I came across this gem too... Mike to Michelle racer:

The article is actually pretty insightful.

Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home.
He knows only The Cause.

Still want to quit?"
