Getting to Know Garmin Sponsored Athlete and Stand Up Paddle Boarder of The Year Jenny Kalmbach
JK: Speed, Time (nice to know how long you've been paddling for), Distance in nautical miles .. it is a great way to be able to test equipment & technique… is it really faster to take more strokes or not – is a carbon blade faster than a wooden blade, which board is faster etc…
G: You are such a great athlete, what made you chose Paddle Boarding?
JK: Because I love being on the water, in the elements.. it's always so different and there are so many different aspects – downwind paddling, surfing, flat water paddling.. because it is so new, I learn something every time i go out. I paddle because it is fun and when I am out there I can focus completely on the task at hand, I leave everything else on shore.
G: Like Garmin, you are a huge advocate of healthy and active lifestyles. What does this mean to you?
JK: We live one life and I want to make sure that the life I live is an active one… I want to be like my grandparents, still square dancing in their nineties, although I hope in my case, I will be paddling. We have an amazing world and I think more people should step outside and explore it. Even if someone just starts with a walk around the block – it's a start… set a goal, a 5k or 10k or marathon and setup a training program – it's amazing how your views change when you have a plan, a goal. When I first started racing I changed everything about my nutrition and training… it was no longer about eating or working out to look a certain way – it was about being a better athlete, a stronger paddler.
The key is to teach the youth that being active is fun and it doesn't have to be a chore. We have the ability to share with them an experience that will change their lives….
