Cheryl Reeve enjoys getting out on Minnesota's lakes and rivers.

Cheryl ReeveOne of the great things about Minnesota is all the lakes and rivers it has to offer. I especially love the summertime in Minnesota because I'm able to get out on the water and go kayaking. Due to our game and practice schedule, it can sometimes be tough to find time to hit the water, but when I have the chance it's always a great time.

Due to the Olympic break last season, our team had the opportunity to take a day off from the practice court and go paddleboarding on the Mississippi river together. It was a great team bonding experience and quite the workout! The day to day grind of practice can be tough, so I'm really glad we had the chance to take the day off and have some fun in the midst of the season. It is definitely something I want to do with the team again.

Getting out on the water is an also great opportunity for me to be able to spend quality one-one-one time with family and friends. There are so many wonderful lakes and rivers nearby that I'm able go take advantage of. The ability to get out on the water during the season is just one of the many reasons that I'm proud to have made Minnesota my home.
