I’m back from the weekend’s regatta, plus medals, a racerback tan line, and a whole lotta muscle ache, minus sleep, sleep and more sleep.
I don’t speak too much about rowing on this site, since frankly, it’s pretty boring to anyone but rowers. However, for the few people who may be interested/curious, I particpated in a Women’s Quad, Mixed Quad, Women’s 8 and Mixed 8. I’m most proud of our Mixed 8, since the crew was a last minute throw-together, and we actually won the entire event (in a borrowed, very heavy boat no less!). That’ll be good for some bragging rights for a week or so.
As for the bit of news I alluded to before I left, I’m one of the newest members of the Metroblogging Vancouver crew. My first piece is currently up. Pop on over and check it out, and if you’ve got any ideas for other city-centric content you’d like to see me contribute, let me know!
