PlayTri and the Stonebridge crack of dawn paddle

September 29, 2009 by mike swope

P9270197 It was a cool morning in McKinney,

the wind was light but the sky was dark….until that is…..

                                      Until the racers were unleashed at 7:31am……….

P9270028 Some swam fast and some swam

slow but one common thread…they all started on GO!

P9270027 The raced through the water fast as

they can, hoping to not be…. the last woman or man…


But in spite of the water with the wind and the waves

                        all racers did finish….. this race with a brave


                 and newfound sense of warrior

                                                              of fighter

or graceful disdain

of each of these kayakers…….                who helped with their pain!

Thanks Mike

Thanks Brian

Thanks Pete

Thanks Dan

Thanks Todd

Thanks Jennifer

Thanks Grace

Thanks Sarah

Thanks Ken

Thanks Arron

Thanks Caroline

Thanks David

Thanks Bubba

Thanks to all the Lifeguards too!

Wow what a day we had, the only thing that could have been better???



If we had just let loose and acted like little kids all day long, and I’m not just talking about the instructors…….

We explored…….P9170537  the river from bridge to bridge and find several things of interest including…

Historic ruins, wildlife (no not the instructors!) real wildlife like the baby alligator snapping turtle, the yellow bellied Texas water snake and several type of water birds too.

Did I mention we got mono a mono with the Elm Fork too??

P9170568 P9170588

So remind yourself for the next trip….
