I have been doing sports my entire life and I always wanted to participate in college but I didn't think I could until I started rowing. I always like to be fully committed to something and putting as much time I can into it so I can progressively get better. I believe that there can always be more to learn and more to improve upon no matter how long you have been doing something or how good you are. I haven't been rowing long but I see myself doing it for a long time. This last season of winter training I feel that I found my drive, every practice I pushed myself as hard as I could and I always wanted more. I found myself going too hard too soon during erg pieces but instead of bringing my split down I tried to hold it there as long as possible. I have always been in ok shape but the more I push myself I can feel the differences. I am honestly, head over heels in love with rowing and bettering myself as a person and as an athlete. I hope to continue to do what I love for as long as possible.
