Top tip for getting up so early each morning: Multiple alarm clocks and a quick shower.
Favourite inspirational quote: "I have failed over and over again, and that is why I succeed" - Michael Jordan
First experience of rowing: I wasn't very good at many conventional sports, so I gave rowing a try. Thr simplicity of the same repeatitive movement over and over again soon turned attractive.
