Hi Everyone! I just started up this blog today, and it is still very much a work in progress. I have never blogged before, and I am proving to be less technologically savvy than I had hoped. Bear with me as I explore the world of personal websites.
I decided to start up this site because I have had a lot of requests to keep my followers involved in my upcoming Olympic adventures. I hope to post every couple of days with updates on my training and thoughts leading up to London. Hopefully it will give you a little bit of insight into the mind of an elite rower and how we will handle the pressures that come with competing in an event that the whole world is watching. Look for posts on our training schedule, our racing schedule, the challenges of staying rested while traveling, all of the cool GEAR we’re receiving, and what the sites are like once we arrive in the village. Please feel free to comment on my posts with suggestions for topics or questions you would like answered!
Make sure you click the link on the top of the home page labeled “Olympic Rowing Schedule” for the full rowing schedule of the games. My events are listed as the Women’s Pair. Also, be sure to click the “Follow” button on the right side of the page. This will make sure that you receive an email every time I post a new entry so you don’t miss anything!
