The pain is like a glowing fire poker.
Wherever it touches your muscles they begin to sear and burn, giving you no other choice but to keep pushing. You can't trick your mind into thinking it will go away; you've been rowing too long to be that naive. The only way it will end is to cross the finish line. The only way you will cross that finish line is if you press harder.
As my resolve starts to shatter, my coxwain, the steersman of the boat, breaks my train of thought. She calls for a Power Ten. Ten of the hardest strokes you can manage. In that moment I feel infinite power. Life can throw any challenge in front of me, and I know I can take it because of one simple reason: I am a Rower.
Being a Rower is more than handling an oar. It is knowing that any pain you endure is only temporary. It is understanding the elements of the pain you endure, and reveling in it. It means you have found an indescribable way of dispensing emotions. It is putting your stress into the water, allowing that water to become your problems and letting the oar blade force them away. It is putting all of your frustration out in the open. It is stepping out of the boat at the end of the race, and leaving all your problems behind.
Then in a moment, my pain fades away. Numbness takes over. Just a little further. Screams pound my ears as we reach our goal. Then I hear the most miraculous of sounds: the high-pitched squeal of a beep, signaling our crossing the finish line. Exhaling jagged breaths, I reallize that despite the pain, I would give anything to go back and do it all over again.
