Everything about this is unintentionally hilarious.
This was a neat find. The funny thing (at least to anyone from Marietta who understands the relationship the town has with the Muskingum, the Ohio, and floods) is that IRAs was moved from Poughkeepsie due to weather concerns and the first year it was held on the Muskingum, it flooded and all the races had to be shortened due to all the debris on the course. Typical. 🙄
A year ago this week was when the USA women won gold in Rio. If there’s anything to be taken away from watching this race it’s that patience and trust in the race plan really does pay off.
Neat look at how the timing system works at Canadian Henley (and pretty much all other major regattas).
Guys, I am cautiously optimistic that I’ll have the new site up by September 1st, which is reallyexciting. I’m trying to take my own advice and not let perfect get in the way of good so as far as the big stuff goes, I’m on track to have all that stuff completed by the end of this month. If you haven’t been following my Instagram stories, keep an eye on them over the next few weeks because I’ve been sharing sneak peeks of what the site’s gonna look like and so far, the feedback has been pretty solid.
The final big project is tackling all the coxswain recordings. There’s a lot that have been removed from YouTube or Soundcloud and some of the early posts from 3-4 years ago just have way too many recordings in them so I want to re-do those and make each post a little shorter and more straightforward.
If there’s anything you wanna see on the new site – literally anything – I’m all ears! I really want to make this site work for you guys and be less blog-y and more actual website-y so any suggestions you’ve got, I’d love to hear them.
Here I am sitting in the boat ... I’m not really doing anything to help the boat go fast but everybody is supposed to listen to me and they are supposed to go harder when I say go harder. It has to be a blind trust. If one person questions me or doesn’t believe what I’m saying, it just doesn’t work. Or if eight people don’t buy in 100 percent, it will still be fast but it won’t be magnificent.Katelin Snyder 2016 Team USA W8+ Coxswain
