This has been the warmest winter in the Hampton Roads area that I scan remember. At the same time work, family responsibilities and getting sick have kept me off the water since the end of December. I can feel my girth growing. The few hours of exercise that I do get in just are not cutting it.

I have registered and paid for the Florida Everglades Challenge and still plan on taking the time off. With work piling up I will not leave for Florida until the last minute. I think it is more important to FINISH than it is to race. This time I am planning to slow down and take more time to do this course. Too much effort goes into this race to DNF. I have checked that box…

My computer hard drive is quite full with videos that I have not produced and published. I normally use less than 10% of the raw video and then discard the rest for the lack of storage. The GoPro camera is the worst culprit creating hours of the same overhead shot.

Here is my new attempt at posting video. This is a day sail in October with WaterDog around Grand View Island.
