Former Rowing Coach Responds

John Casey

Here I am, browsing at a bookstore in Wellesley, MA with a friend and naturally, I gravitate to the Sports Section.  You can only imagine my thrill and delight when I discover that the John Casey of this captivating book, entitled, “Room for Improvement” is THE John Casey, a man whom I know and love and had the pleasure to coach!

And then, better yet, I come to discover that you mention me in the acknowledgement section and that I helped you shave a minute off of your best performance.

John, let it be known, albeit, belatedly, that I loved working with you and Tom and cannot wait to read this wonderful book as I also love to explore the extremes!  Thank you for sharing your adventures and no doubt, they will inspire mine!

All the best and again, thank YOU!
