Pushing Limits

I am a speed freak.  I admit it.  I love things that go fast - cars, boats, jet ski's, go-carts, snow-skiing... 

Yes, I did a flip on the ski slope, wearing skis, and ran into a tree in my younger years.

At a corporate function several years ago I won a trophy for the fastest female on the go-cart track (yes, one man beat me, damn it).

I've ridden 100 mph on a speed boat and loved it.

This is my daughter at an indoor racing facility yesterday.  She was the slowest one on the track.  *sigh*

I went out with my family Saturday on the jet ski's.  My son wouldn't let me go over 30 mph with him on it.  *sigh*

As a mother, I should be happy they aren't comfortable pushing limits.  Shouldn't I?  Or not?

Pushing limits can lead to breakthrough performance.  Pushing limits can land you in jail. 

Pushing limits = good or bad?  Your thoughts?
