In preparation for the MR340 this year, I’ve been trying to do weekly paddle sessions. It hasn’t been perfect, but I’ve been doing more training than the last few times I’ve done the race. I’ve learned that my family doesn’t miss me early in the mornings. So I set off shortly after 5 am for this trip. It was raining lightly, but that didn’t bother me. While I probably didn’t train my body much better, my mind sure enjoyed the paddle!
