Paddling 100 miles down the Hudson River to circumvent Manhattan in forecasted 100 degree Fahrenheit reminds me of an Ultra-marathon in the desert. What are you made of ?
You can follow these remarkable women and men paddling to raise awareness and money for many great causes on the 100 Mile Facebook page or come out to cheer them on this weekend anywhere along the rivers. The Start is in Kingston, NY around 6 am on Saturday, July 20th and the Finish is around 4 pm on Sunday, July 21st in Manhattan on Pier 66 at 26th St. and the Westside Highway. For more details and the race course visit their website.
I figure, I’ll find out what motivates these unique humans that are willing to push themselves to their limits in the name of charity and while documenting some of the paddlers personal journey, I am hoping to feed updates to my blog here.
