Hi Everyone - just a quick snapshot that I took from behind the group on Wednesday June 13 (during our stroll up the hidden creek). Enjoy!

Hi again - just wanted to pass along this great YouTube video on kayak technique.  You probably recognize a lot of the things we've already been talking about in our sessions and hopefully learn a few others too!



P.S. How amazing does the water look - lets go there!

Hey Everyone - as mentioned, here are the times from tonight's timed 1000m.  A reminder that these are not important for anything other than self-awareness and to have as a benchmark to compare against at the end of the season!  

For those of you who missed tonight, I'm happy to do another timed 1000m at our next practice.
