Cambridge, Mass. -- The MIT women's lightweight crew squad recently took a training trip to Florida. It was a great chance for them to escape the cold, bond as a team and get some great offseason work in. Sophomore Katie Inman provided us with this account of the trip:
As we set off from the Orlando International Airport, spirits were high. So far the forecast had nothing below 65 for the next few days and it was beautiful and sunny already. Despite the constant reminders that this could be a repeat of last year (where temperatures plummeted to 32 degrees some mornings), everyone headed to the site to unload the trailer and rig the boats before we could head back to the hotel. After rigging, a large grocery shopping trip, and a lot of chit chat about how incredible it was to be in warm weather in the middle of December, we headed to bed eager for the first day back on the water.
