But i can and I will do the 2,000 Meter Race. the first two practices Sunday and tuesday preparing my team for the 2K Race that is to take place on Sept 13, Sunday, I jsut could not do it. I had to stop and rest and I prayed. Well yesterday I was able to do the full 1,000 without stopping and without a break at all but I was still praying for the strength to carry on. Prayer works! It is hard to do on my body. From one bridge to the other cirle around and back circle that bridge and back to the other bridge. I am wondering how this can be done racing against other teams. that Saturday I ahve a 200 meter race and then a 500 meter race just 2 that day. (Normally we do 3 races) then Sunday is a 500 meter race and Wild card Draw and the final race is the 2,000. I've even been eating much better. I know i can do this.
This weekend, well today and tomorrow some of my blind team members are participating in the Hood to Coast run Marathon. (I'm not a runner) so they probably won't be at practice on Sunday. My coach and her husband are missing Sunday and tuesday to attend the AC/DC Concert in Tacoma, WA. boat population will be very scarce. It's much ahrder to pull that boat with fewer people.
Again this is a great sport. I really wish I had learned of it years ago.
