Old things becoming new things...

A few days before I got the bad news, I had made arrangements to go check something out. I had been feeling discouraged about running and thought maybe a little change-up might help.

The checking-out happened on Saturday morning. I was so fortunate that it was gorgeous out instead of cold and windy and rainy...

 Sunrise and San Quentin Penitentiary

I had opted to go for a ride in the coach's launch and talk with the coach about the team instead of hopping in a boat. I must confess, the moment I pulled up into the parking lot I started quivering with excitement. While I was glad I had chosen to not row that morning, my appetite was whetted. 

A little morning choppiness out on the SF Bay...

 ...but pretty glassy down by the inlet.

I can't wait until Wednesday.

I'm going to row.

At least, I'm going to try it.


  1. Yay! You're going to row! This is awesome Marjorie. Gosh, you just keep going...I love this about you. Can't wait to hear about it.

  2. Hey Amanda, it is called "taking it on", not "being smart"!!!! But hey we are humans and don't have nine lives like cats, right xl????

  3. Good for you! It's great that you have a killer activity like that to fall back on. I hope it rocks your world.

  4. Ah yes-- good for you! This makes me happy.

  5. Many positive thoughts for you as you rejoin this part of your past with your current status and your future. ((HUGS))

  6. I have always wanted to try rowing! I'm really happy for you. Can't wait to hear the reports.

  7. Rowing is calling you for sure.

  8. Ha! I sense some excitement ;) Have a great row!!

    Rowing men have amazing arms. I'm finding that thought quite distracting.

  9. Yay! That is SO awesome! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  10. So happy for you! I think this is fantastic

  11. Yeah girl!! You go row! Thinking about you and so very happy for you!!
