|For all of my WHS friends, learning these lifts again brought back memories of Rod and also made me wish I had spent more time perfecting these lifting techniques back in high school!|

One of the highlights of our trip was an early morning trip to watch the rowers train. We got to sit in the boat with a coach and watch/listen as he took his athletes through a training session. It was probably a once in a lifetime opportunity and it was also a gorgeous morning to be on the water.
|My coworkers and Kim Crow, who won a few medals in London. She was one of the rowers who we got the chance to watch train. And, yes, I work with all blokes!|
Boys will be boys, and my coworkers decided to race each other at the end of our last day at the AIS.
Due to our busy schedule, we did not have time to visit the "touristy" parts of Canberra. Despite what most Australians think, I wouldn't mind another short trip to Canberra, this time to see the "sights" and perhaps due some hiking in those surrounding mountains!
