Why Do You Row?: Rowing, to me, is as much about the teammates I compete with as much as it is the race itself.  I grew up with two brothers, so everything was a competition in my house.  When I came to college I needed something to meet that need to push myself.  Through rowing, I found not only the competitive outlet I craved, but a whole new set of brothers to compete with.  My teammates push me to be my best in practice and on the race course and demand that commitment and competitive edge that helps me focus on the important stuff.
