In this episode I got the pleasure of talking story with 2020 overall winners and new record setters of the second annual Great Alabama 650.  A grueling ultra distance paddling race that spans across the entire state of Alabama into Fort Morgan in Mobile Bay. Racers have 10 days to complete the full 650 miles. With 9 portages and 3 mandatory checkpoints with cutoff times, this race is no easy feat.  Since each portage has only 30-45 minute downtimes, racers have to manage their food, sleep and navigation skills in order to traverse through the Coosa, Alabama and Tensaw Rivers and through the wild windy and choppy conditions in Mobile Bay. Lucky for me, I had the partner/support crew of a lifetime and was able to complete the adventure in a little less than 8 days. I hope you all enjoy and see you on the water!
