Uh, yeah, you don't want to be a lawyer.
No, not a lawyer. But I wanted to be a doctor or a fireman or something useful in that moment. No, I definitely wouldn't be a lawyer. But seriously, it was like I just felt completely powerless, and I did a lot of soul-searching after that time, because I felt like, "Well, I really should be doing something that means something with my life," you know? Not that Race doesn't mean something, but...
Nah, I understand.
I just felt like maybe I have the power to do more, you know?
So it just pushed me more. I was already on the road to making this thing a reality, but it just gave me that extra "oomph" that I needed. And...doing something for others. You know, becoming less selfish from my original list. So at the top of my list was to make NOW a reality. And I'm a firm believer in writing things down and visualizing. So I got personalized license plates for my car that said NOW, so that every day, I was reminded [crazy electronic music plays] to, you know, do something towards NOW. And lo and behold, you know what they say, careful what you wish for? I had no idea this year was going to be as busy as it was, but...Race gets picked up, and then the book got sold, and NOW got picked up, and suddenly I realize I have a year where I don't have a day off, and I don't remember what sleep is.
I was going to say, I wouldn't think so.
I have done like a quarter of a million miles this year alone.
I was going to ask you that.
Well, 75,000 or whatever it was on Race 5 in February alone. I hit 100,000 on American Airlines in June...I just have been living on a plane, and I have never worked so hard in all my life. But I really am excited about this particular project, because I feel like it's actually...it's a powerful message that people can actually get something from. And I think Race has a lot of those great...I think the reason that people continue to gravitate towards Race is that it is a positive show that's entertaining. And I'm trying to do that with this show. You know, through entertaining people, inspire them. And this is probably a little more...you know, this show is more towards that motivational thing. And it's our first season out and everything, but I'm really pleased with it, and I'm really excited by it. People seem to be really responding well to it. I've been speaking to various critics, and this morning I did the satellite tour, and people who have seen it, they're like, "Wow, we were really jazzed by what we saw."
