My boathouse calls it the line in the sand. It’s not actual sand. It’s the line separating the concrete outside the boathouse from the concrete inside. To a non-rower, it’s not a significant line. But to us, it means everything.
Once you cross that line, all casualness and joking disappears. When…
dude. I love you. You. are. so. incredibly. awesome.
hi! i'm an interested rower. a lot of my close friends do it and the river near us is beautiful. i've always enjoyed kayaking which is kinda similar in a way. however i'm physically weak. i'm just now getting back into shape by doing excessive stretching and biking when it's not raining. however i heard that there is a novice coach and regular coach. if i joined next year i'd be the only novice out of my friends. is there a way to do some time of winter program or whatever to be eligible to row in regular races? they have an erg at my school which i can hopefully use to practice on but still. i know it's a big commitment but i think it'd be really rewarding.
Well! I started during the winter and worked my ass of (really it’s gotten smaller lol) Idk what ur situation is, but honestly even if you’re not with your friends, the girls you have in the boat are people you will have an unimaginable connection with. The key is dedication. Work hard, pull hard, never give up, and maybe your coach will bump you up.
I hope this helps!!! Rowing is a great sport for EVERYONE
hi so i just wanted to say that your blog is awesome and i probably reblogged like 928734982734 of your posts in the last 24 hours... and you'll get that sub-8 soon (: i'm at 8:23 as of two days ago, which I'm pretty proud of seeing as about three weeks ago I was pulling splits around 2:14.. but anyway, yeah, that's all i wanted to say (: keep up the good work!
WELL HI! good morning. That’s really good about your splits! (Once you start dropping time it just keeps dropping!) Thank you for reblogging and reading haha Hopefully I’ll break 8 soon! Thank you :)
p.s. I’m adding you to the list of rowers i have on my page right about… NOW
Why do I do this to myself? First off, you make me feel like shit by kicking me our of your life every month or so for no apparent reason, and then coming back into it as if nothing changed. I’m miserable. I feel sick constantly. I’m tired of everything, and it’s hard for me to feel joy anymore. You act like you have complete trust in more or like you care about me, like right now for instance, but you don’t really give a fuck and you never did. SO. WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF? YOU. You and everyone else on this godforsaken planet. You’re all the same. No one truly cares. No one. And the ones that do can’t put up with me.
yeah neverweighnuff! i havent seen any others tho!
Okay. Hold up. Let me post a really long list of rowing blogs for you. This may take a while and I’m too lazy to link them so you’ll have to do a bit of work hahahaha just check ur dash or my page in a lil
I have a quick question. What is your split/time for a 2k? I’m curious because a lot of you seem to be extremely in to this sport (not that you really have a choice when you join crew) just like I am, and I would like to know what my competitors are pulling.
Also, are any of you going to the…
(don’t hate me, I was an intense swimmer before I rowed)
