We’ve got great advice from Diane today as I continue my interview with the wahine paddlers.
h3. About Today’s Show
More details on the race prep today: the difference between regatta season (short distance races) and long distance (change races and “iron” endurance races). But smack in the middle of all this physical training, is the emotional-spiritual excitement that we paddlers feel as we approach the Molokai to Oahu race. I think it is most intense before the very first crossing, as that 41 mile open sea is so full of potential and unknown.
Diane reminds us very wisely that her goal is to not to get caught up in all the trappings of the race and instead to just enjoy moment.
Now I learn that Mindy (a long time beach walks viewer and videoblogger herself) is also coming for this race. You can bet I’ll be doing more shows on this topic, as outrigger canoe paddling is such a true Hawaiian experience but also a powerful experience of sharing our spirits with other paddlers, the canoe, and the sea – a wonderful abundance of feminine energy!
