Just like Kelly... Debbie will be reminding herself to keep breathing about every minute and a half.
BTW... It should be noted that this is what Kelly does (While maintaining her sense of humor) pretty much every race weekend.
Go Debbie and thanks Kelly!

I gave her a two and a half page race weekend to-do list of what marketing normally does while at each event, so at least she's got all the info in one spot! lol
