This year I made it to the Spring race and missed the next 3 races due to ingrown toenail surgery, vacation and a broken toe. So I was thrilled to be sort of ready to join the team and get back in the boat for the LA Dragonboat Race! Legg Lake was a Peanut Butter and Jelly party! It felt more like a family picnic than a race day. We had a great time talking, eating, playing games, eating… a little racing in between. Manny grilled, we ate. Veterans and newbies alike, family and friends. As cliche as it sounds, it was a good team-building event to wind down the season. It's cool to see how many folks have completed their first season with LARD. Oh, yeah, wait, did I mention that we won 1st place in the finals to cover our entry fee for next year! Yeah, that happened.
During the off-season keep 2014 in your sights. Let's be fit and ready when Spring arrives, LARD!
As a newbie on this race, it was all I was told it would be: cooking n grilling and some fancy eating; and we ever managed to throw in a race or two in between. It was a nice, relaxed environment, awesome food and most of all, plenty of fun. Looking forward to next year’s.
