3 days. Or sleeps. At our house, since the kids arrived, we talk about sleeps. Tonight is the group farewell dinner. Most rowers have family members here. I miss mine, but I’m glad to have a chance to focus 100% on the row and the boat. Much like when I went up Everest and the time I spent prepping in Kathmandu and hiking to Basecamp gave me space to prepare myself. I guess I could say that it’s my style. Have a look at the video below. You’ll see me in a few moments – working away on my gear in the background.
