With all the Olympic events a few weeks ago, it got me thinking about success and how it is defined. Sure, we talk about gold, silver and bronze medals and the athletes who win them, but is a medal the ultimate symbol of success? Does a gold medal mean that you had more success than the silver medalist? Does simply being on the podium suggest that you are more of a champion? [ 894 more words ]

I spent the weekend in Ottawa at the Ice Dragon Boat Festival. What a fun event! A huge thank you to the Vermont Fire team for letting me steer them, to Ckat Duke for making the amazing dragon hats, and to Eric Pearson for the fabulous photos. #icedragonboatracing #Ottawa #VermontFire #icedragons #paddlechica
What a great day with the Vermont Fire team at the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival! It was wonderful to see so many friends and meet so many new ones. Racing was fun, followed by skating on the Rideau Canal as it started snowing (who would've thought I'd be dragon boating and ice skating on the same day?!). And I even got interviewed by CTV. Thank you Ottawa for a fabulous day!
Teams vary from highly competitive at one end of the spectrum to all-inclusive at the other end, with everything in between. Finding the right team for you is often a difficult process. Some paddlers find themselves wanting more of a competitive challenge, yet the club they belong to has more of a social focus. Other paddlers want to be on the race crew more often, yet their skill set isn't developed enough and so they find themselves as a "spare" quite frequently. [ 1,167 more word ]
