Paddling the Blue #40 - Bonnie Perry - Passion beyond the paddle
Today we hear from Bonnie Perry. Bonnie is a special person to me as she was one of the first people who really welcomed me into the paddling community. Bonnie always brings the fun and an infectious laugh to any paddling environment.
She is a very insightful coach, shaped in part by her unique day job as the Episcopal Bishop of Michigan, which comes in handy as she experienced on more than one paddle, one of which she describes in today’s talk. In this episode, she shares how paddling inspires her and how she accepted the generosity of others to reach her best.
This was my first remote interview and kind of exciting for me personally to be able to take the show on the road. We did this one at about 11:30 pm on the patio of a rented house at the Door County Sea Kayak Symposium in Wisconsin. For a first remote, I think it turned out great. I’m looking forward to taking the show on the road more.
