ROWING AND PREPPED FOR SUCCESS

SINCE 2001, when someone at church introduced me to rowing, I have competed in about 100 races, from small high-school school dual meets, to collegiate national championships and international competitions. Inevitably, my racing has taught me about effective preparation for success.

Each season it becomes clearer to me that in rowing, as in most other sports, college athletic programs tend to base their activities on the assumption that their athletes possess a limited supply of talent, and that they must leverage this talent to gain their best chance of winning. This viewpoint reduces competition and preparation to an exercise of willpower over opponents or the body, resulting in either success or failure.
