|LWRC Senior Master's Women prepare for Row for the Cure.|
We came in fifth of ten women's eights. But in our Senior Women's division (our boat age is 57), we came in second, with Bainbridge Island winning by only five seconds!
Coxswain Ellie Burg brought her singular focus, superb motivation and technical skill - along with her extraordinary ability to keep the event fun.
We've all been working hard under Coach George Andreadis' capable direction, and our team is beginning to coalesce. Just look at us!

Fortunately, the breast cancer picture is changing. As a doctor, I remember when breast cancer was a death sentence. Today, most women do very well - particularly when the diagnosis is made early.
For the LWRC Senior Master's Women, this event was a grand way to kick off the Fall racing season. We rowed well, and we had fun!
