Second Annual Battle of the Bay Canoe and Kayak Race

We decided last year that this year we would kayak, and yes, it was so much better. The weather was perfect. I don't have any good kayak pics yet since we were racing   I stole a few taken of us racing, and  there are also some that I took from the canoe race, including of my co-workers:

We didn't do a training program like we'd hoped - the warm weather did not present itself in time to get out on the water.  And it didn't help that we were training for a 5K and Curtis is doing his pedometer program; but we did okay: 

Curtis got 9th out of the men in the kayak race!

And I "sorta" got 2nd. There was a question as to where I finished which is why my name was crossed out. I'm pretty sure at least one other woman placed before me - but I definitely did well among the women.  

We also were excited to learn that Mobile County won the "paddle" back from Baldwin county by doing better in the races than Baldwin County.  So it was a big win for the Mobile County judges and lawyers. 

Overall we're pretty sore, but had a good time.
