- biked from our house to a nearby city to catch a bus: about 8 miles
- took the bus across the lake
- biked from Montlake to Fremont, about 3 miles
- rowed with his team for 2.5 hours
- biked back to Montake to catch the bus back
- bus across lake
- bus stop to the other rowing club, an easy downhill mile or so....
- .... and then rowed for two hours there .
It's all been land workouts until now, but today was the reward you all get to get into boats day!
During the rowing with the other club, he was in a single. They did a lot of work, and at the end, raced a 2k. Perry beat everyone. All the girls from their girl's team, who had a 2 minute handicap. The other 5 boys in singles. THE QUAD.
So yeah. That's pretty cool.
But here is the real part I'm proud of. The coach told him that if he wanted to row with them, he would no doubt be in their first varisty eight. That's a pretty major deal, since I think they won regionals and went to nationals.
I think Perry will stick with his small team... I get why, but I think we need to come up with a speech for the coaches at the recruiting meeting we're going to next week about why he'd stay with such a small program. The answer, btw, is that he gets to row, but he also gets to demonstrate leadership, he's responsible for many things in a way he would not otherwise be.
