“Don’t worry this race has never been won in the first two miles.” That is what the kayaker next to me at the starting line told me. He could see that I was nervous and assumed that it concerned where I would place or what my time would be. Truthfully I was just nervous about whether or not I would be able to finish 340 miles in 88 hours. Prior to the 2016 race only 3 SUP’s had ever completed the MR340 and this year we had 15 SUP’s so chances were good that not all of us would finish.
BEHIND THE SCENES
We skipped some checkpoints and stopped at others, mainly for supplies (food and water) or a quick nap. Every check point grew smaller and smaller. Come to find out, over half of the participants dropped out by the end.
We are Ryan and Hannah Fullerton. We built a tiny home between fall and spring of 2014-2015. We sold it in may of 2015 and moved into a travel trailer full-time. We love to explore and go on adventures with friends. Our favorite sports are Stand up paddleboarding, and rock climbing. We train hard in the gym so that our bodies are strong and ready for our outdoor activites. Follow us on our journey to live small, but have big adventures!
