Top kayak races of 2018 – #2

pgh-2

My second favorite race in 2018 was the Pittsburgh Paddlesport Championships in downtown Pittsburgh, PA during the Three Rivers Regatta.  Hansel Lucas and Performance Kayak organized the event. It was very well planned and organized and I had amazing sponsors who helped me raise over $550 for the American Cancer Society.

Add the fact that I grew up in Pittsburgh and always wanted to paddle on all three rivers downtown, and you can see why I was thrilled to participate in this race.  I was in awe paddling past the stadiums, under the Roberto Clemente Bridge, past the amazing spectators who cheered us on at Point State Park, and just generally taking in the scenery in downtown Pittsburgh.

It still feels a little like it was a dream and not real.

I’m looking forward to it again in 2019.
