Such a Blast!

Outrigger (not Voyageur) canoe
Molokai Hoe 2010
M. is the second from the right
As I told someone today, if I weren't his mother, I would never have even met my son, M. Our paths would never have had an occasion to cross--with him, the Uber-athelete and me, the old couch potato.

So I have to say, I'm impressed even to know him, let alone be his mother!

Check out this link Race to the Midnight Sun to see the progress of M.'s six-man voyageur canoe in the world's longest annual canoe race (444 miles), which started at noon today, Wednesday, June 27. 

Running with the current on the Yukon River, the course begins at Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and ends in Dawson City.

His team is "Such a Blast," number 55. Cheer him on with me!
