Once the Red Rover Queen of Yeadon, P.A., she felt she could glide through time when she ran. She lost that feeling she had as a child as she became an adult. Years later, remembering that child who ran with joy, she obeys a direction to start running again. Running leads to ballet and watching women in eight-oared rowing shells compete in the Olympics leads to rowing for a time. Then, with no experience, driven only by determination, she takes up sculling, a sport that requires an easy comfortable relationship around water. Something she doesn’t have. She learns that the one thing she must never do―fall out of the boat―is what is most likely to happen.
