15 years ago yesterday I went to my first rowing practice with my high school team. To quote Drake, “started from the bottom now we here”.
Yesterday I posted the speech given by the alum we honored at our annual banquet last month – if you haven’t read it yet, definitely check it out. Lots of pearls of wisdom in there. I also posted a couple new recordings last week as well. If you’re a high school coxswain, I recommend listening to the first one (and reading the post linked below it) if you anticipate racing any time trials this year.
I’m flying to Oakland tonight for winter training with the lightweights (shout out if you followed the JFK shitshow on Instagram yesterday) and we’re rowing out of the Strokes boathouse so I might see some of you over the next week – definitely say hi if you see me around! I also think I’m doing a very chill and super informal clinic/Q&A that’s tentatively scheduled for Wednesday evening so if any of you are interested in coming to that, hit me up and I’ll share the details.
