Not only because of the race and the paddling but also because of the great music by Hoos In Treble as a soundtrack.
I hit the gym hard yesterday and did a rare, full-body workout for around 90-minutes so today I needed some time to recover.
The weather was beautiful and with 70-degree temperatures there was only one thing to do: take the kayak for a leisurely paddle on the S. Rivanna Reservoir.
I launched at the boat ramp just above the dam and paddled up past the VRA dock and then turned around and paddled up Ivy Creek before heading back to the boat ramp.
I stretched the 7 miles out to 90 minutes and thoroughly enjoyed a late-season paddle.
