still traveling with my 6 month old...The Island of Zamami: Team Sunova Racing in Japan

Aiste is asleep so thought I would take the chance to write a quick update from Japan.
Raced the beautiful Kerama Blue Cup in Zamami事務局 Japan... I experienced a whirlwind of emotions out there on the beautiful 18km course... it was fun.
After a rough start, I found myself with lots of alone time out on the water. I had plenty of time to think and reflect on life while grinding it out and sweating like a beast. I seem to have become rusty on a few of my racing techniques. I am hoping that with some more racing practice these skills will come back to life:) As I was deliberating whether I belong back out here among the elite of the elite of the sport after a poor start and working hard but not gaining ground something inside of me sparked up....I can remember the moment the switch happened, I actually started getting my race mojo back and I began to paddle my brains out...and made up loads of ground on the racers ahead of me. It was a little too late in the game unfortunately, as I couldn't quite catch 3rd but in the end I got pretty close:) I am hoping this was the switch I was looking for and my fire has been stoked.. we will see:)

...With the help of my amazing team Sunova Surfboards anything is possible. and YES we all paddled two piece boards:) WHAAAT!
