Rower's gotta row
Bonnie Sashin reports this is the time of year when she starts getting itchy to get back on the Charles in her red racing shell:
Ivve had fantasies of defying the Rowing Committee’s edict that no boats go out until further notice. Do I respect their concerns about danger and liability surrounding an over-exuberant rower's death by flipping into icy cold water? Of course, because every rower, including yours truly, has had the experience of tipping out of her boat, and usually or more than one occasion.
