Aiste and I made it to Carolina Cup... it was a long day of travel. 3 flights, 5 am departure, 1 am arrival... she nailed the whole thing, either sleeping or smiling the whole way.. I on the other hand could have used a shorter travel day..haha I am definitely getting old... I used to live off the adventure of it and I still do but there is less desire for discomfort hahaha.
We have been blessed with 2 amazing traveling babies... Tav was a great traveler as an infant and now Aiste seems to be following suit quite nicely, I reckon an even bigger charmer than Tav was which would have been hard to beat...
I am stoked to be here. the community, the vibe, the excitement... Kelly and team Sunova are taking good care of me and AIste and I can't wait to paddle the new All water tomorrow... Hopefully with a little luck Aiste can hang with someone so I can try it out today... :)
This year its about enjoying the ride and going with the flow. I used to be very type A, very particular with my needs but travelling on my own with Aiste and racing I can't.. I have to be flexible, it has to be about fun and if I can manage a good result then its a bonus...:) The coolest thing is I have already won, I get to cross the line and come home to my amazing family:) woohoo!
Thanks to all who are helping me to keep paddling and getting to these races. Mamas, I won't lie it ain't easy BUT always worth it... and if your lucky enough to have a strong community behind you, you can do it too:)
