Surfskiracing.com shared a great post by Joseph Dichiacchio (Chattajack-Men’s Kayak 1st) and his 2014 Chattajack race experience. Funny and inspiring, enjoy the read!
Excerpt from the article:
It was about this time that I hit the wall. All “rhythmic glide” was gone. I was dying a thousand deaths and began fantasizing about giving up. The shoulder devil took position and began a series of lectures on human limitations. Maybe I should just call it a day. My forearm is cramping. Do I hear someone paddling directly behind me? I’m about to be passed by a thundering herd of paddlers. I’m hungry. I’m angry. I’m HANGRY! What would it take to sink my ski and make it look like an accident?
