"I row 16 kilometers per day. A few weeks ago, I was in Germany for the Junior World Championships. My goal is to make the Olympics one day. But it can be tough to compete with the European countries. We don’t have the gym equipment that they have. And they practice with actual racing boats. We only get to use the racing boats during the race."

Back in my day, rowing was done with a plank of wood and two spoons, the first single.

Omg I would cry

Dear Lord, no……

THE HORROR!

WHY THEM WHAT DID THEY DO

And now let us take a moment of silence for the poor soul responsible for this incident because they are probably being ripped a new one.

And I thought that losing ONE boat off our trailer was bad…

R.I.P. Thousands of dollars of equipment

I’m sorry but there is no way I could not reblog this. It made me too happy.
