Go Vet Women CRASH-Bs

Post by carie graves » February 13th, 2007, 9:44 pm

Hey - my first time on this forum but probably not the last. I noticed (since I'm racing in it and checked) that there are 29 women racing in the 50-54 hywt. age group.

Yahoo and very exciting, by far the largest group ever in this category!

I remember watching from the stands in 1986 and there were just 3 master's women total. That was just 3 Master's women over 30! I told myself I would do it every year after that - I've missed 4 or so.

It's wonderful and encouraging that so many women are doing this.

Go Vet women

I think many of us learned to row later in life and are thrilled with the new challenges that rowing brings.

I will be watching my adult son at the USA Indoor Track Meet on Sat. and he will watch me at the Crash-B's on Sun.
I call this reverse genetics, he is an athlete, so I must be!

Go 50-54's!

That is so cool to have so many veteran women. I had hopes of getting to Boston and trained...(I did race in Cincinnati last month at the satellite races). But, being 52 puts me in the midst of the sandwich-generation's issues. I've spent the last few weeks caring for a hospitalized parent out of town....hence training suffered and I didn't book a plane ticket.
Good luck to all!
See you next year!

After 27 years out of the boot-stretchers, I am back rowing.

Carie - have a great row this weekend and I'm still in awe of you.

Anne - I want to be just like you when I grow up!
