Hopefully all of you are experiencing blisters. If you don’t have blisters yet, we need to talk. The experienced rowers have been through it before, but for the novices, this is a regular part of the season, especially now. The good news is, they will eventually harden up and not be a problem. Experienced rowers may be of some help to you in terms of what they do to treat them. I still swear by a product called Friar’s Balsam, which you can find in any drug store. It stings a wee bit, but it dries up the blister and hardens the skin.
