Remember, preparing for a SUP race, your first or 20th; requires mental preparation, a mental course map, clarity, having a plan for the unexpected and so much more.
At the starting line, my anxiety and fears eased because there was no going back. I started to be nicer to myself and take the pressure off my performance—I just wanted to finish.
I was the WEAK Whale! I had fallen behind and I was going to be a shark snack! Wow, I was really beginning to not feel well. Alone. Falling off my board being pounded by wind and waves. My body dangling into the water, I anticipated JAWS!
Andy has a heart of gold and his stoke for life and love for his family shows in everything he does. Cancer is very near to Andy and his family and he is helping others by raising money through this paddling event to spread the word of hope and health and that you must go on. Great to know you Andy.
