Oh, because there is nothing like the feeling of finishing a thirty one two mile paddle race alive. (I still don’t believe Ben’s GPS reading. But that’s another story for another day.)
The Foot was getting bored and wanted something to look forward to. I’m going to start training prone and do a mix of standup and prone training during the summer. Chattajack is my long SUP race this year, and I’m aiming for the Chucktown Showdown elite course on prone. I’ve got my work cut out for me.
Even though I successfully did it last year, I have plenty of healthy fear about it this year, but, well, Kim seems to think I can do it, so Imma try.
It’s a pretty spectacular experience, so if you have the guts and the mental toughness to train for it*, sign up now. Because it will sell out.
*No really. You need to train.
