    Ep. 686: Trying Every Sport in the World to Discover Your Next Passion - Hilary Spires

    For some of us, we let fate and passion find us by chance. For others, we go out and find them ourselves. Hilary is among the latter.

    After being in love with hockey since the age of three, Hilary was looking for another sport she could be passionate about. The idea to try every known sport, over 8,000, was her solution to discover her next obsession. About 50 sports into the challenge she ran her first trail race and she was hooked!

    Today we’ll hear Hilary’s story about how a crazy idea led her to discovering her new life passion.

    Ben is joining Adventure Sports Podcast to tell us about his first paddle descent of the Sonam Section of the Kuri Chu in eastern Bhutan.

    More about Ben from Precisionpaddlesports.com ( http://www.precisionpaddlesports.com/about.html ) :

    “Ben is a native of Orange, Virginia where he grew up playing around in and paddling on local rivers. Over the past 15 years Ben has been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work alongside numerous paddlesport instructors and coaches at various paddling schools, outfitters, and colleges throughout the U.S. and abroad including the National Outdoor Leadership School ( http://www.nols.edu/ ) , Nantahala Outdoor Center ( http://www.noc.com/ ) , Jackson Hole Kayak School ( http://www.jacksonholekayak.com/ ) , Costa Rica Rios ( http://www.costaricarios.com/ ) , DeRiemer Adventure Kayaking ( http://www.adventurekayaking.com/ ) , Otter Bar Lodge Kayak School ( http://www.otterbar.com/ ) , New Zealand Kayak School ( http://www.nzkayakschool.com/ ) , Wilderness Rescue International ( http://www.wilderness-rescue.com/ ) , Next Adventure Paddlesports Center ( https://nextadventure.net/portland-paddle-sports-center.html ) , Alder Creek Kayak and Canoe ( https://aldercreek.com/ ) , Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center ( https://rmoc.com/ ) , Canoe Kayak and Paddle Company ( https://www.ckapco.com/ ) , Zoar Outdoor ( https://www.zoaroutdoor.com/ ) and many others.

    While Ben's background is river kayaking, he enjoys spending time in diverse environments on paddleboards, canoes, and sea kayaks.  Ben's strengths lie in his excitement to share his passion for paddlesports with others, his eagerness to continue to grow and develop as a paddler and instructor, and his positive interpersonal skills. Ben will be excited to work with you whether its helping you improve your paddling technique, guiding you down beautiful tropical rivers in Central America, or leading you on your first multi-day river experience.”
