I started rowing in 2007 following several visits as a spectator to cheer on my hubbie at the British Indoor Rowing Championships. I took the plunge at a 2500m competition in Basingstoke and even when I came in last, everyone was so encouraging I decided to carry on. I joined the Taff Attack online team and really got bitten by the bug. Basingtoke was followed by a marathon in Holland and the CRASH-Bs in 2009. I love the online encouragement and support we all get. Long may it continue!
