Standing up to depression and tackling the Coast to Coast
Christchurch man Matt Calman shares his personal struggles with depression, and his epic journey training for the Coast to Coast Longest Day race.
Matt learned to kayak with us here at Canterbury Kayaking, and I don't think he'd mind us saying paddling didn't come naturally to him. Admirably, he stayed committed throughout immense challenge, and is now a competent paddler who loves the river.
If you're looking for a book to inspire, keep you motivated, or find routes through your own struggles, we'd highly recommend giving this one a read.
