Last night I paddled hard for 2 hours and I still feel so good and refreshed! Our bodies are built to be used and pushed to maybe 80% efficency for a few hours a week. Runners call this exhiliration a runner's high, but why should they have all the fun? The great physical mystery of the universe concerning our bodies is they feel great and are strong as we use them and push them to near peak performance. We are at our peak emotionally as we feel the joy of much oxygen being processed by our body- and the fat is burnt off and the cobwebs leave our brain because we are putting forth effort! "Born of water I was born to be one in my boat as we nestle among the whitecaps. Maybe the 30 footers are skittish about going out lest they spill their martinis, but I am so alive and one with the motion of the waves. Born of water my wing blade and I were born to rip holes in the water as we blast along in the joy of putting forth effort!"
