Life on the river: inspirational people

Award-winning blogger and journalist, Patricia Carswell, shares her latest rowing adventures in her Life on the river blog below

Woohoo! We’ve made it to mid-March after an interminable, locked-down January and February. I don’t know about you, but I’ve needed all the inspiration I can get to make it through this winter. Happily, that inspiration has been there in spades, thanks to four amazing athletes who have provided light in the darkness.

1 – Pete Reed

Ever since I started rowing, Pete has been a huge source of encouragement. A brilliant ambassador for the sport, he’s always taken time to connect with ordinary, club rowers, with annual challenges and regular updates, and his positive attitude towards the various obstacles he’s encountered have made him an incredible role model.
