How’d you get started? Both of my parents paddled competitively so I had the opportunity to get in lots of boats growing up. Racing sprint is just a natural outgrowth of that early exposure.
Hero:I have been fortunate to have grown up around many people who are heroes in my mind. I would be hard pressed to pick just one; and would be doing a disservice to the others.
