Counting the Days
One week from today, I'll wake up in a hotel room in Providence, Rhode Island.
In the 48 hours that follow, I'll row, race, and most importantly,
enjoy all of the fun and camaraderie that is the U.S. Gondola Nationals.
Gondoliers from several operations in different states will be there,
all wearing stripes and rowing their hearts out.
We'll get a chance to row in the famous "Waterfire".
Sprints, distance races, and slaloms will be part of the agenda.
I know I'm not the only one looking forward to seeing how
the folks at La Gondola host this event.
Only one problem:
I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep between now and then.
