Kona 2.0

I completed a goal before my fiftieth birthday in December by participating in the Queen Lilioukalani canoe race. This was the second time I went to Kona for the event, the first time I suffered an injury at the race start and was unable to compete. The course is eighteen miles and my crew of six completed it in 2 hours and 30 minutes. We were not the fastest team on the water for sure but it was a great team and individual experience nonetheless.
