Story When I started at Ridge Canoe & Kayak Club we had solid Junior and Senior groups along with world class coaches. In my developing years I would always set daily goals, whether it was staying up in a new boat, paddling further then yesterday, or keeping up with someone that was 4 years older then me. My main thing was always pushing myself to improve. Now older, I still train with the same attitude. I want to be able to sit on the start-line knowing there is nothing more I can do to be better prepared.
