The DENmazing Race: This was the first time I felt comfortable enough to actually participate in the race. The weather was beautiful, and I had an even more beautiful group aligned to my participation style. We were the Smooth and Easy team, even taking the time to look at the beautiful campus, and even a bunny or two.
DENSI2014 is a safe place to be. Normally I do not participate in events like dancing, or races, because I do not want to be embarrassed or cause someone to loose. I have felt so comfortable with my DEN family that I even attempted to dance during the DENmazing Race, and I even country line danced at the Wild Horse Saloon!! People who know me understand that I am an introvert, and am only comfortable sharing certain things with others. Dancing is NEVER one of those things. It has happened twice at DENSI2014, and that is a major testament to the family that the DEN is.
