My little brother and I met up to do a 5K paddleboard race yesterday. I paddled like crazy and gave it my all but have now have learned from this second race that my board is definitely NOT meant for racing being the smallest and heaviest board out there. Oh, well. It was fun and that’s what I went out there for. I LOVE paddleboarding. It’s the type of exercise that doesn’t feel like you’re exercising. It’s so peaceful and such a de-stressor for me. If I do another race, my brother has agreed to let me race on his board. His board is much longer and more buoyant. My brother, on the other hand, placed 6th overall! Was a great Saturday.
