C&K contributor Diane Gaydos has been busy for the last four years. In addition to paddling 100-plus days per year around the globe, Dr. Gaydos managed to graduate from medical school. Check out some of her recent paddling highlights in this 100th episode of the "A Wet State" series by Daniel Brasuell, whose description of the video says it all:

"I can’t believe that I am at 100 videos! I needed something special to make the video of… that is easy. Diane has been my paddling and life partner for the past 10 years. Last year she graduated med school and became a doctor. During the 4 years of med school she showed a determination to continue boating that was inspiring to say the least. How she managed ~100 days a year on the water in each of the 4 years including 5 international trips all while getting her studies done and taking each step of the boards exams still amazes me. So, this video is of her. The person who inspires me to get out after a “long” week at my job…"

100 episodes, finishing med school, and ten years of being partners in life and paddling? That sounds like plenty of reason to celebrate.
