The End for Me...



So this past weekend we were at SIRA in Oak Ridge, TN. For those of you who don't know, SIRA is a big regatta! I knew going in that it would be my last with Georgia State University. I have mixed feelings about this... I'm sad but I haven't put a lot of thought into it, so once fall comes and I'm not involved with the team, I'm sure it will hit me full force.

My boat did not do well and seeing how close we were to one boat and not beat them.. is NOT easy for me to deal with, especially since I walked away with a medal last year. But I will say that our boat came together and had great bonding moments. We painted our nails with blue panther paws, Jose drew tattoos on our arms and we had matching head bands. So even though we didn't do well, we had a great time!
