Well, for those of you who don't know, I'm on my school's Crew team (rowing). We just got back from Nationals in Cincinatti. Funny how it happened too....

Well it all started in Oklahoma City at Regionals. Our lightweight 4, which I'm in, received 3rd and failed to acheive the 1st or 2nd place required to qualify for nationals. Well about 2 or 3 weeks later, we get a call. The team that got 2nd dropped out, bumping us up from 3rd to 2nd. So now we're going. But one problem. One of the rowers can't go. wo we recruit a heavy weight novice, who has faster times than all of us due to his height, to row in his place. Well, this is a lightweight boat. He's 8 pounds over 155. So he starts to lose and lose and he's only 5 away when he decides to go out to eat with his girlfriend and gains back all 3 pounds. So for the next 3 days of racing he goes to a sona(or however you spell it) and sweats out 8 pounds of water weight! His urine changed color about 4 times. We all had a good lessons in Biology. So we get to race and get 3rd in the C finals making us the 2nd best in our region and 15th in the nation! Fun Trip!
