My son and I went to rowing camp. Troy who runs the center joked that the coaching is great the the food is better. The coaching is as good as the food - perfect. In a nano second the coaches connected with each participant and focused each individual's goals. (everyone is at a vastly different skill level and is there to work on different skills.). The rowing camp was about each persons own experience and as a newbie to sculling I felt as much a part of the scene as the tall jacked guy that rowed from MIT. The food was fresh and inventive. The dressings, jams and cookies were wildly good. You sit on a deck overlooking the water eating with others in the program. Conversations were fascinating. We had olympians and world class athletes at our table. THe campers and staff formed an instant community. My story from the weekend is that there were two guys that are 80 in the program. 80 year old phenomenal athletes!!! They were roommates in college in the 50s! My son and I sat down with them and I asked them for the magical secret to staying athletic in your 80s. I was waiting for an answer like eat 7 rum soaked raisins at breakfast, do yoga, sleep 8 hours a day, eat chia seeds. The current world champ erg-ersaid "genetics". Oh well.
