Fat Paddler

Description:
Horrific car accidents, the Bali bombing, too many sausages...Sean Smith survived them all. This is one man's story of his journey back to health and fitness and recapturing his passion for life. As a hard-playing, hard-living rugby forward, Sean Smith was used to putting his body on the line. However, that soon changed when two severe motor-vehicle accidents left him with devastating physical injuries, and unable to regain his past physical fitness or his zest for life. After witnessing first-hand the 2002 Bali bombing, Sean also found himself suffering from post-traumatic shock. Compulsively working long hours in a stressful job and battling to find time to be with his wife and two small daughters didn't help either. A losing battle against obesity and an ongoing struggle with depression followed. After being told by doctors he was a prime candidate for a heart attack at just 36, Sean decided enough was enough. He took up kayaking (a sport that could accommodate his injuries) and then decided to tackle one of the toughest paddling competitions in the world: the 111-kilometre Hawkesbury Canoe Classic.
What follows is an entertaining and inspiring account of Sean's journey back to health and fitness. His many hours training on the waterways of Sydney, and a trip to Alaska paddling amongst icebergs and running away from bears, fuelled a new appreciation for the beauty of the outdoors and recaptured his enthusiasm for living. Sean's story is an uplifting experience for those looking for motivation to regain their fitness and enjoy life to the full.
