I spent this summer at St. Paul’s Advanced Studies Program near Concord. Besides learning a ton and becoming addicted to coffee, I learned how to row in an eight which was pretty exciting and a lot harder than it looks. Rowing is actually a very technical sport and rowing all together is quite a challenge – especially in a boat full of novices. By the end of the summer, I discovered that I love to row. It’s a great team sport, awesome for ski training, and really hard. This fall, I decided to continue with my rowing and I’m now part of the Upper Valley Rowing Foundation’s Fall Junior Crew Program which meets three days a week in the mornings.
