Here we go again!

It is my utmost pleasure to be doing this paddle for the 5th year. This may very well be one of the most important things I do all year. 

I never dreamed as an autism parent that trying to get an hour of me time on the water would lead to racing, much less racing 26 miles around NYC. 

I usually get very emotional, heartfelt and wordy when it comes to this statement thingy. This year I shall keep it short. 

I never quite find the time to train properly, but I will never quit!

I dream of the podium that gets further, but I will never quit!  

I have hundreds of special little people in my life that quitting is not an option, I will ALWAYS show them I will never quit, because THIS IS FOR THEM.

 Thank you for supporting SEA Paddle NYC and all its beneficiaries.
