Training partners [rowing]

Tuesday morning, there was one other rower out when I got to the boathouse, but he was headed for the dock. After I finished my paddle around the BAP, I found a note by the logbook that said, "Rebecca: Let's train!" with D's e-mail address (D will henceforth be nicknamed The Brit, to go along with the other various rower nicknames).

I've seen The Brit out and about periodically, and I think he's even participated in one or two scrimmages with the Serious Double, so a training partner sounded like a great idea to me.

Apparently The Brit used to row in London, back in the 1980's. He took a break starting in 1988, and has spent the past year getting back into things and figuring out sculling.

While it's nice to let the Serious Double feel good about themselves, it's even more fun to have another 1x to row with. And that will also keep me on the hook in terms of showing up consistently to train.

When I got off the water, another newish rower was there, E. She seems like a super sweet person and seems to be learning a lot in the singles, so I asked if she'd be interested in taking a double out for a spin at some point. Seems like it could be fun.

I'm going to miss the BAP and BPRC when I leave. A nice spot, and good people.

Also, check out this lineup of algae piles removed by the weeding machine. This isn't even the whole set of piles!
