According to Maria this is for my “rowing time”.

According to Maria this is for my “rowing time”.


Maria was struggling to carry a piece of pizza and her stuffed animal.  Our dog was trying to snatch her pizza.  I took the stuffed animal and put it in her waistband and she was able to carry her pizza above her head like a single made of cheese and dough. 

 Rowing is infectious.  It’s a raging staph infection that I am grateful to have.

No matter what craziness is happening all around me…. No matter what kind of day I’m having or week or year…when I just feel like saying fuck it…I can press play and do something for My health, my happiness and my soul.

Isn’t our cox Emily just the cutest?  I’m eat up with how funny she is too.  The first time I rowed with her she wrote everyone’s name and seat number on her leg.  She said she was going to be calling people out because “you think your not the problem but you are” Ha!  How delightful, a teenager who is not a sulky, sour puss but also not a bubbly butt kisser!  Emily doesn’t seem the least bit intimidated  and she makes lots of jokes.  And they are pretty funny.  
She gave me some really good advice last week, well she gave it to the boat, but I really absorbed it.
 It was regarding handle heights and the set of the boat.  She said to have confidence with where your hands are, don’t try to make adjustments in that stroke.  If your height is affecting the set you can make up for it in the next stroke. But for that stroke it is what it is.  
Wise words for life outside of the boat as well.
I need to keep better notes of all the funny things she says, but it is not possible to write them down while rowing(duh). Barb also said something hilarious this morning and I have already forgotten it!  

AND most importantly!!! I caught a crab when I wasn’t even rowing!  I was just about to add in and my oar got pulled under. Emily laughed and said she really wished I had caught an ejector crab because that would have been “really,REALLY funny”. Then not long after Louise caught a crab that knocked her flat on her back,legs up in the air.  That actually was really funny.

I am so paranoid about the set of the boat. Handle heights are the new rushed slide.  Grumpy cat had that to say about it.

Blisters on top of callouses. What a novel idea.
