    I was going to pick one up this weekend at least for when I'm climbing. If I'm feeling kookish enough maybe I'll paddle out with it on as well.

    I had a physical therapist friend of mine feel around last night and she's pretty sure its the old tennis elbow. I could probably stand to do a better job of stretching before I paddle out or climb.
