She did it again.
Another thoughtful, useful, well written, humorous, self-deprecating post written just for rowers landed in my inbox this morning.
I’m talking of course about Lauren Crandall and her new-ish blog, Dear Novice Rower.
Anyone who has rowed for JD knows his phrase “ham sandwich.” He’ll use it to describe a pause you may have, particularly at the catch.
“You’re sitting at the catch so long, you could have a ham sandwich,” he’ll say through his green megaphone, always making me smile at the thought of someone bringing a ham sandwich in a boat with them.
Never did I think the day would come that someone would actually eat a ham sandwich in a boat.
