It’s weird… I really never missed crew after I quit. I had an amazing senior year without the sport (truthfully). I definitely do not regret my decision to quit. At all.
However, I kind of do miss it. I think it’s like missing any part of college (sororities, friends, exams– LOL just kidding). While I only watched five seconds of rowing races during the Olympics, crew has been way more on my radar recently.
For starters, I went to the Head of the Charles Regatta. It was really the first time I had immersed myself back into the “rowing world.” And then I wrote this post for the Brooks Brothers’ Blog about the basics of rowing.
Eep! It’s hard to know that I’m probably never going to be in the ninth seat again. (Actually, I really don’t want to ever cox again… but I still do have great memories!)
Has anyone else ever felt like this before with something?
