Wolverines in Brooklyn – My BK Half Marathon Michigan Connection

Hey All,

So here’s a crazy anecdote as a follow-up to my Brooklyn Half Marathon recap post. My sister texted me about 2 minutes before the race started and said “I swear I just saw a Michigan rower on the race course!” I didn’t know who at the time, but turns out…

…it was my friend Lindsay who I often rowed with at Michigan and just happened to be sitting behind me in 2-seat for the NCAA Championships in 2010. I had NO IDEA she was running but thought it was pretty cool that there was another Michigan rower out on the course that day – running about half a mile ahead of me for most of the race. We ended up finishing about 20 seconds apart – obviously a testament to our strong Michigan training back in the day 🙂
