Dragon Boat Racing



This morning I participated in a Dragon Boat Race at Mission Bay. Our team: Civil Serpents (if you haven't guessed it, it's a team consisting mainly of lawyers and judges...) Did you know that dragon boat racing is second to soccer in terms of world-wide participation? I still can't believe it. Considering that our boat consisted mainly of women (not that we women can't kick butt at this, but I believe many of us have stronger legs than we do arms), and that our first rival was an experienced team with coordinated jerseys, I think we did well. We didn't win either of our two races, but we gave it our all.

Check us out on the front page of the local section of the Sunday 10/22 edition of the San Diego Union-Tribune!
