Bucknell Women's Rowing Journal - Sarah Riessen
Feb. 2, 2011
I really had no idea what to expect coming into this rowing program. My rowing in high school had never been extremely serious and I was excited to attempt rowing at a higher level, yet I had no real expectations. Now that we are halfway through the season I've come to realize many things about the program; one being the sheer number of hours it consumes, and two, how the atmosphere of the team makes me want to work harder and push myself further.
I have yet to experience racing, but I honestly can't wait. It has been many months of training and working towards something that seemed so far off in the future. Yet now I feel like we are close to getting back on the water and entering an atmosphere of competition full of wonderful energy. Thus far it has been a great experience and I am so happy for the team and everything it has exposed me to.
