2008 Ka Nai'a Outrigger Canoe Club Rig Run Race. The plan was to donate bodywork for his clubmates. Instead, due to traffic delayed officials, Paul was asked to serve as a SCORA Official for timekeeping, assisted with First Aid for boat huli, and then at the last minute was entered into the 13.5 mile Men's Open race around the oil rigs... No one received a massage from Paul that day....
