Ultramarathons? Double Ironmans? They have nothing on the Ultimate Florida Challenge, an all-out, 1,200-mile kayak race around the Sunshine State where competitors face sharks, exotic snakes, storms, drunken powerboaters, hallucinations, and extreme mental and physical fatigue. Journalist Warren Richey, fresh from a divorce, entered the 2006 race. The result is an amazing tale of how he sorts out his life alone in a kayak for three weeks, surprising even himself as he becomes a contender to win the race. His new book WITHOUT A PADDLE chronicles his incredible journey.
