Head of the Charles is one of my favorite Boston events! Because men who row, are the hottest creatures... I mean.... I love when Bostonians get together. I really do love crew, I use to row in college, and there's nothing like being on the Charles watching the sun rise. Until you remember you actually had to be at the boathouse at 4 a.m. to be on the water by 5 a.m. I use to wear these hot pink crew socks so my best friend could see me from her dorm window at BU. She was never awake when I was on the water though......
I did crew for a year at Simmons College, got a medal at a regatta in NH, then quit. I was diving as well, and that was more of my focus. I also liked sleep. There were some nights where I wouldn't come home from "studying" until 2-3 a.m. and then have to be at the boat house at 4, and if your whole boat wasn't accounted for and ready to go by 5, your whole team had to be in the boathouse all day on the rowing machines. You could say I wasn't really the team favorite. I'm actually wearing a pair of my crew socks in this post :)
Thanks Brooks Brothers for also making this regatta fun and festive! Loving this official 52nd BBHOCR sweater!
