This is amazing – a local high schooler completed a swim around Manhattan, across the Catalina Channel, and now across the English Channel. Congrats Charlotte – an amazing athletic accomplishment at any age, let alone being the youngest to attempt it!
Well, the time has come to change my rowing club affiliation to Passaic River Rowing Association. I rowed with a buddy at PRRA last fall when I won Masters Nationals in the double sculls, and I feel that the club will align better with my competitive goals while allowing me more flexibility to integrate Crossfit into my training. It is also where the Don Bosco and Ridgewood crews row out of, and has just received a grant to start construction on a boathouse. Don Bosco is the high school team that started doing winter training at Crossfit Ignite this year.
It’s been a great run at Nereid, but sometimes change creates an opportunity for excellence, and I’d like to take it to the next level a couple of miles downstream!
