Favorite rowing memory/ies: when I think back to my amazing time at UB rowing.. the last 500 metres of the Dad Vails novice 8+ is my favourite memory that comes to mind .. I still get goosebumps remembering that race, I could call the entire thing back in this moment.. being in last place crossing the first 500m line, to fighting for ANY podium spot & then crossing that finish line 1st by 1.1 seconds! Ask any of those 8 women.. hard 10 for coach lizzo into that last 500 got us our gold medal.. those 8 ladies gave EVERYTHING & together we did it!.. back to HS/club rowing is definitely winning Henley in 2006 in the Jr. men’s 8+
