Rowing: Second Place

Roy in 2009

Earlier this month, the annual rowing competition ended. This was rather disappointing. For the first time since I began competing (2001) I did not get the first place, but it’s not a total loss. Later this week I will do the 2-mile row for another competition, in which I have performed quite well so far.

As the years go by and we all age (I’m 27), the motivation — not just the ability — to stay in good shape rapidly declines. In the table tennis competition I got knocked out in the quarter finals.

    Hey Roy, don’t worry you probably just had an off day, you still got the chance to kick all our butts in the 2000m. By the way the gym closes on Friday (tomorrow) at 5pm for the Labour Conference so you need to have your rowing completed by then, best of luck dude!

    Thanks. I guess it’s a matter of motivation and willpower.
