We raced at the Head of the Eagle in Indianapolis this weekend. Our quad was the only entry in our event (I guess there aren’t enough other old ladies wanting to try it), and a result of 16:56 for a 3-ish mile race put us behind a University of Louisville women’s boat but ahead of the high schools (both genders) that raced. We also put together a four (for you non-rowers, that’s four rowers, one oar each, and a coxswain), and we beat Xavier and University of Chicago in that event but three U. of Louisville boats were ahead of us. The weather was overall beautiful but very windy, and whitecaps make rowing challenging. At least it wasn’t close to last Thursday’s weather when we went out in a tornado watch and nearly Edmund Fitzgeralded by the 56th Street bridge!
