I competed in Masters rowing from 2000 to 2018. In 2017 I had one of my most active seasons. In most regattas I raced not only in my single, but also with other scullers in doubles and quads.
In my second regatta of the season I was a little past the midpoint of a race in my single, when suddenly I became dizzy and felt I might be losing consciousness. After a few moments of bewilderment, I began to pray vehemently, at times yelling my insistence that God was governing. (No one was near me, and the conditions were pretty windy.) I was able to stay upright to the finish and had no further trouble during the regatta.
A week or two later, I was working out on my rowing machine at home when the same thing happened. It was an important timed workout, and I didn’t want to stop. Again, I prayed vehemently, and I was able to finish.
