One thing I've picked up from class, is looking for things like tire walls during warm up and parade laps, and telling myself, "if something goes wrong, I am NOT going to hit that." I don't know why, but it gets me into "escape mode" faster.

Glad you're ok.

I do that on the first few warm up laps....I call it playing the "what if" game...
