Rower Connection: Bridget Logan
How did you find the sport of rowing? Or did it find you? Rowing definitely found me. My freshman year of college I didn’t want to get over-involved in extracurricular activities (I’m really good at that) so I could focus on my studies, but somehow I found myself at 5:30 am practices, running up the seats and down the stairs at the football stadium, sprinting up
Rower Connection: Todd Cooperman
How did you find the sport of rowing? Or did it find you? Ever since I was very young, I have always been attracted to the water. The irony of this attraction is that I do actually get sea sick when I am in the ocean, but only when standing still (for the benefit of the person sitting in front of me the next time
Why I Chose Rowing
The incredible sport with a long and rich history is rather foreign for many of us. My introduction was through my son who decided to try out for the high school crew team.

Why would anyone pay $35 and drive 4 hours to/from Boston in order to do a 2k race? Well, I decided to find out! After hearing so much from everyone about this great race, I finally got my chance to try it on Sunday, Feb 25th. This year’s race was a little subdued compared to prior races (or so I heard) as the World Qualifications
Why Choose Rowing?
Written By: John Greaser Tired of looking in the rear view mirror of your life? If so, become a different you and take up rowing. Have you ever asked yourself the question, why do people row (scull, crew); or more specifically, why out of all the possible movement disciplines consider rowing as an option. I posed that question to myself 20 years ago and haven't regretted
