Year in Review from Jez Blanchard

2011 was once again a bloody big year.

I headed up to Cairns to help run and participate in Monsoon Madness, the inaugural national boater cross event with the national freestyle championships tied in with it. I was fortunate enough to win the 2011 National Champion at this event and really enjoyed boating with the crew up there.

As with every year that I have paddled, I headed off to the USA to another fantastic summer. I do believe that I am up to over 20 summers in a row, sweet. While I was there I instructed a bunch, paddled a bunch and had only one day off the water in three months. We estimated that we instructed over 200 kids with our program, thats a whole lot of instruction for sure, but it was again so fantastic to be a part of. One great side effect of heading to this part of the world is that I get to paddle the Green throughout the summer. Warm summer green runs, life is good!

Today I found myself in the pool, settling into my planned 500m warm up that seamlessly transformed first to 750m, then 1000m, and finally resting at 1500m.  It was one of those days when everything else just melts away and all that is left are the meters ticking away.  Recently someone asked me why I raced.  At the time I came up with a reasonable answer about challenges, sanity and balance.  But today I remembered what keeps me coming back, it’s that moment when all that is left inside your head is you and you let go of everything else.

Swiss Army Knife

This is a video in response to feedback about the inability of a Swiss Army Knife to be opened with a single hand. The Swiss Army Knife is a classic tool and one I recommend for every day carry.
