About Me

Me, Myself, and I
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
Lance Armstrong



"Marathon runners talk about hitting 'the wall' at the twenty-third mile of the race. What rowers confront isn't a wall; it's a hole - an abyss of pain, which opens up in the second minute of the race. Large needles are being driven into your thigh muscles, while your forearms seem to be splitting. Then the pain becomes confused and disorganized, not like the windedness of the runner or the leg burn of the biker but an all-over, savage unpleasantness. As you pass the five-hundred-meter mark, with three-quarters of the race still to row, you realize with dread that you are not going to make it to the finish, but at the same time the idea of letting your teammates down by not rowing your hardest is unthinkable...Therefore, you are going to die. Welcome to this life." -

  • single sculling!! :L

    With a single scull there is no cox, otherwise a single sculler would be propelling a sole coxswain and themselves and the boat which would create a major pain in the arse legs and the rest of the body. Single scull rowing is known in rowing as “kings class” quite rightly so.

    With sculling, a single person in the boat is responsible for all movement in the boat so its your fault when you screw up- and thus, the sculler has direct feedback on the effects of his/her movements on balance and speed.

    In short Scullers are loners/antisocial if they have crashed its their fault and for a few sesions become paraniod and turn around to much and if they come up with excuses for things they cant be taken seriously because unless a rouge seal attacked the boat and pushed it to the shore you crashed it end of [although there are exeptions like wash from a boat {usualy the safety boat when your in last place in a race and it overtakes you}]

  • COX'S

    Now a Cox is a pox on this world's lovely face,
    A boil on the arse of humanity,
    They've tortured me through many a race
    And driven me close to insanity.

    Oh, they all seem quite normal and clever
    When they're standing on the bank
    But as soon as they hit the water
    They become as thick as a plank.

    With their up and down, and their in and out
    And their steady state for ten,
    No matter what they $%£*&@? shout
    I hate those little men.

    I've raced on rivers, lakes and ponds
    And on courses that are tidal,
    And every cox I've ever had
    Made me feel homicidal.

    For there are only two kinds that I've ever had
    And both of them were a curse,
    One kind was the "just plain bad",
    And the other the "even worse".

    Because a simple trip from A to B,
    Is full of thrills and drama,
    When they take you all around the world,
    Like Vasco De Bleedin' Gama.

    With their build it up and their wind it down
    And their 'round the turn again
    No matter what they $%£*&@? shout
    I hate those little men.

    "You've been dropped. They've gone ahead
    Come on lads, feel the pain".
    Oh what makes up a Coxes head?
    A mouth without a brain.

    Now it's only when you win a race
    That you can throw them in the river
    And not when you're down in deep disgrace
    And burning up with a liver.

    And when at least you win a race
    And yours was the first of the boats,
    No matter how deep the water is,
    The bastard always floats.

    Oh with their up and down and their in and out,
    And their steady state for ten,
    No matter what they $%£*&@? shout
    I hate those little men.

    So please don't you believe them
    When you pulling for that line,
    Because when they call "Last 20 strokes",
    It's more like thirty nine.

    All they can say is "up Up UP"
    (When you're already going for broke)
    Until your slide turns roaring red
    And your arse goes up in smoke.

    With their build it up and their wind it down
    And their 'round the turn again
    No matter what they ever shout
    I hate those little men.

  • You know your a rower when............

    *Everything you do is "in 2..."
    *You need to have a small pushy person around telling you what to do all the time.
    *You can get up, get dressed and get out of the house before your eyes are fully open.
    *The phrase "cox box" doesn't make you giggle.
    *You believe the world wouldn't exist without lycra.
    *You only recognise your friends from behind.
    *You stick water bottles in your shorts for no reason at all.
    *You feel naked without clothing enough for 10 people on.
    *You believe all authority figures carry a megaphone.
    *You sit in class leaning to your rigger.
    *Half your body is bigger than the other.
    *You blame bad moods on "the balance".
    *Your friends need a rowing translator to decipher your language.
    *You can wear the same thing every morning for a week and not think twice.
    *You think sleeping late is waking up at 8:30.
    *Everything's a race: you walk quickly to class, just so you can pass people
    *When you sit down, you look for the tie-in shoes.
    *You constantly check the tightness of nuts in handrails, chairs, door handles, etc.
    *You bring up the beauty of the dawn, and people give you blank stares.
    *Overhearing people talk about how little sleep they got causes you to smirk.
    *You admire the man who wears boxers under his lycra much more than a woman wearing a g-string under hers.
    *You watch videos together, and it's ok to say "She's looking really long."
    *You dress and undress one-handed so you don't have to take your hand off the blade.
    *Every time you sit in a chair you are mildly surprised to discover that it doesn't slide back and forth.
    * Your friends comment on how silent you are when you eat.
