Zack and I ready to head out together for our first regatta of the year. I'm racing in 2 races, the women's 8 and a mixed 8. I guess when you row for the racing women, you always do 2 races. Little nervous about that, I hope I have 2 races in me. Seems like an awful lot of work! :o) It's funny that no one even asked if we wanted to do 2 races. The fun thing, Zack is coxing my mixed 8!
All calculus all the time! Such a good boy!
He seems so grownup and like such a man!
Best bow mate ever! Jay and I are like 2 peas in a pod, probably going to get in trouble if they keep us together!
I made it through both races! It was tough, but not as bad as I expected it to be. Probably because in the mixed 8, you have the guys helping row so it makes it a little easier. Our Women's 8 came in 5/9 and out time was 20:34.4. I don't even know if that's a good time or a bad time, but I'm fine with it. The Mixed 8 was 4/6 and our time was 20:10.2. Seems like our women's time was pretty good if it was only 24 seconds slower than the mixed 8's time. Zack is a most excellent coxswain! It again amazes me how good he is. I don't know why I'm always amazed when my kids do something great, but I am. He was so calm and decisive. My favorite thing that he says is, "Stay with me, Stay with me." It always makes me want to push harder.
