After trekking across campus I came back to the car and sent out an SOS message because I had no idea what I was doing. Luckily two of my CA (other schools call us RAs) friends came to my rescue and we got the car started. Also, some part of the hood was broken and we used duck tape to fix it, but I'm not going to get into all of that.
Finally I made it to the regatta and I was there for a grand total of five minutes when my former coach came up to me and asked if I wanted to cox. Before I knew it I was pulling off my cute outfit and putting on the clothes of the guys in my boat so I could jump right in and race! I was worried that I would not remember what I was doing but I needn't have worried; it was a fantastic race and our boat did so very well. It was great to be with the guys again and have a thrilling race.
