Paddling Tip of the Day

Canoeing, while normally a recreational activity, call also be a competitive sport. Like any other physical endurance race sport it is best to pace yourself. Nice long steady strides will be your best bet. Don't do what I am tempted to do and go as fast as you can for a short time and then just wear you self out when you still have over half the course to go.

I take it that this was the part of the race that didn't go so well???

I went on a white water rafting trip in West Virginia this year and paddling is a lot of work.

Overall the race went very well. The first half of the canoe portion was rough though, until Jen encouraged me to find a pace.
