"It was cool; cannot deny that. As for cold, we rowed in the "tanks" off season, and in the rain and ice all the time when the boats were in the water. To this day I detest being cold and wet outside.
I remember one frosty spring morning…"
"Yep, sliding seat it is!
My technique's not great at the moment, but I do think I've managed to get a hold on pushing with my legs rather than pulling with my arms. There's a few guys in the boat club who are still working on that,…"
"I'm doing postgraduate work in the UK and my college doesn't charge for membership in the boat club. We just had our end-of-term regatta yesterday, actually!
Must have been really something to row with the big schools on the east coast,…"
"I rowed all through my teen years. Competing in both sliding seat and fixed seat competitions.
It's a great sport. As for sliding seat (the kind you're probably referring to). It can take a lot of practice before you really get your…"
"Where? It's not a cheap sport.
I rowed for some time in college. It was one of very few varsity sports that took anyone with a pulse over six feet (except coxswains). Very beautiful but also very demanding sport. Training was often grueling…"
"I put rowing -- but on a machine -- back into my upper-body workouts a few months, ago, and am really enjoying it. I count it as cardio rather than strength, and I've heard that it's a better cardio workout than an elliptical or a…"

Avete and χαίρετε,I'm just about to graduate from the undergrad program in classics at the University of Toronto, and I'm happy to say that I'll be off to a master's program in the same field next year. The trouble is that my degree has been almost exclusively focused on developing linguistic capability--I can read Latin very well and Greek well enough, but both my socio-cultural and historical learning leave something to be desired.I don't intend to do real work in those fields, but I would…See More

Any ways she was told by her lawyer and the bankers that her monthly payments were tax free, so,she hasn't paid any taxes on this stuff for 8 years but today she…See More
I had a first date yesterday, it went really well (I think) but I'm not sure what to do next?Some background...I never had too much trouble with the ladies but I'm 32 now and this feels different to when I was in my mid-20's. Like I'm dealing with a woman rather than a girl.I've only just began dating again after a 4 year relationship so I'm a bit rusty.I met this lady online, she messaged me first in fact, we exchanged messages for a day and I asked her out for a drink. For the week in between…See More
