Hey. I do Dragon Boating. It is a really cool sport that I always wanted to try. It all began when my friend invited me to her mother's regatta. All I wanted to do then was eat the wontons that were on sale. I was not really interested in the actual sport but as time went on I became really interested in the sport and I wanted to do it, so as soon as the day came for me to sign up for clubs I chose Dragon Boat. It was a really hard decision at first because I also wanted to do Cheerleading but it was on the same day as water training so I gave up Cheerleading and chose Dragon Boat. It would have been nice to do both but I am glad I chose only one. I love Dragon Boat soooooo much! It is really hard at first and I was constantly in pain as I was working a lot of muscles that I never worked before.
Dragon Boat is a great way for me to stay fit. We work really hard. Recently I took part in my first regatta. The amount of work, time and effort that went into all my practice sessions was unbelievable. I put heart and soul out there every time I hit the water. The practice paid off as my team gained a silver medal. Pretty good for first timers. I would recommend this sport for anyone who is interested. It a really great sport to be in and you meet really nice people.
