I'm back

Three months to the day I wrote about my uncertain future as an ocean rower, I sat on Rehoboth Beach in Delaware and stared out to sea. I made pro and con lists in the sand. I hemmed and hawed. And then I told my kids my shoulder was well enough to make the row. I asked them what they thought about me still going for it- to row across the Pacific...

"I never thought you would do anything else."

"OK. Of course you will. It will be OK."

My kids were not surprised. 

And so, with the blessings of my orthopaedic doctor, my endurance trainer, and my family...I am so freaking excited to be back in the game!
