    3rd @HOCR in the books! Finished 14th overall with my masters four from @SammamishRowing - started bow #22, passed several crews, including three at the start of the Eliot turn, and had a really solid race overall. (I’m particularly proud of my Weeks and Eliot turns, especially Eliot… #sneakattack #bladesinthebuoys) (at Charles River)

  12. Rowing causes a lot of pain. We hate it for that but we also kind of love it for that. Think about rowing without the pain, it wouldn’t be such a passion and love.
