Train Hard, Rest Easy and Party like the Season’s Over!

26 Jul

I apologise for having been AWOL for a couple of weeks since the big race – but I haven’t gone, I’m still here – I’ve not retired early! I raced last weekend at Molesey Regatta, and am very much looking forward to the last couple of regattas before the season finishes for the summer.

You may have spotted I’ve been busy with the uploads to my instagram, and since Women’s Henley I’ve had a couple of weeks off to relax and catch-up with friends that I haven’t seen since October 2012, and make the most of the amazing weather we have recently been spoilt with!

Tonight is the End of Season party at the club – despite there still being a further two regattas in the novice race calendar! – but this weekend I have some spare time, and will update this page with the latest goings-on from South West London.

Be Happy : TRC Start of Season Party

30 Sep

Pirate Night at TRC!

Due to the amount of novices at TRC this year, the club’s social committee decided to put on a start of season party to introduce the novices to the club.

A pirate themed party, to which only novices seemed to have made the effort!

It was a good evening though as it was nice for us all to get together without the usual lycra ensembles!
As for introductions to the rest of the club members, the seniors and elites turned up much later and much more drunk than anyone else – gave us a good insight to the expected culture of the sport! It seems the drinking is just as competitive as the racing! And the mantra of work hard play harder was quite evident!

As I have been dry all year – minus one or two special occasions – a girl’s day at the races isn’t the same without champagne! – I decided to test out the possibility of drinking only softdrinks at the socials, and it wasn’t that bad! However I think a few may have been on best behavior for the first party!

We’ll soon find out at the next one!
