Take aim and let fly: Archery on the Central Coast

 
There’s something inherently romantic about archery. Perhaps it’s the simplicity, the fact that a stick and some string can send an arrow flying clear across a field. Or maybe it’s the bridge archery creates between modern men and women and our ancient ancestors, people whose lives depended on their ability to shoot accurately. For Riley Royce Smith, a local marksman and archery instructor, the most enjoyable aspect is the Zen-like peace he gets from the repetitive act of mastering a craft.

In the beginning of July, we celebrated our country’s independence. Usually a fun time, one spent outdoors with friends and family, playing games and enjoying good food.

The perseverance of a 67-year-old marathon runner

Running a marathon is hard for any human being. Novice or elite athlete. It requires months of training and a willingness to push through 26.6 miles of pain and exhaustion with the reward of having someone put a medal around your neck. It’s an endeavor that most people have zero desire to undertake. However the process and experience is a commonality that all marathoners share regardless of their age or skill level.

Joy in every step

SLO athlete hikes the 500-mile Camino de Santiago through Spain

I may be the first person in history to take a 500-mile hike to heal aching feet. I’d been sidelined from running for nearly a year with tendinitis, but I could walk.  I imagined the Camino as a ”consolation prize” for all the races and adventure runs I was missing.  

The Camino turned out to be the grand prize. Quite simply, it was the happiest month of my life.
