Internalized messages [rowing]

BestRower

My novice coach during my freshman year of high school used to say that. He originally rowed for Harvard, which makes me wonder whether the saying originated with Harry Parker. I suppose I should read the book about Harry Parker next.

It's a message that I deeply internalized, and that has been important for helping to carry me through situations that might otherwise have felt like big setbacks.

I'm still trying to be that Best Rower. I don't feel like that rower when I get in the 1x, for instance. But it's something to keep aspiring to.
