Massive thank you to Sonya for joining us last minute and coxing so well after only one outing.

Practically perfect in every way... (Harriet)
I'm liking the tactic of stroke-side eating their own bodyweight in baked goods to rectify the balance problem! Pretty good for a 5k, the first 2k came quite nicely with a solid rhythm. Bit of a wobble in the middle, seeing M1 pulled over was v disconcerting, but dodgy patches only lasted a few strokes and we really picked it up for the end, although Sonia's "10 strokes til the finish" seemed to last a lifetime! Overall the cold and the wind were worth it to come 2nd in our division and beat Jesus :) (Charley)
Awesome! Bring up Bumps! (Ulrike)
Awesome day! Thanks so much for the great experience !!
As for the race as such - I think there were bits that were absolutely great and some less mainly because of the damn wind or when we saw the guys on the side- but luckily there were few of those and we got back on track quickly.
At the end of the day we were faster than Jesus :) (Sonya)
Hey girls, it was nice to see you all yesterday and even better to see these results! Well done! You've clearly got off to a good start this term; make the most of that. (PS I am VERY excited about Lents...!) (Erica)
