Like you, I was curious about her so I Googled her on Bing or something like that and found a decent interview of her after the 2009 Head of the Charles at or near http://www.row2k.com/hocr/features.cfm?ID=896#.UQphy2ko5aQ

She did start rowing young 65 years old for her.  :-)

Thanks for sharing her inspiring story, Charles!

Liz started rowing when she retired from her job running a lab at the Stanford University Hospital at age 65.  She says she needed something to do, and downhill ski racing didn't quite seem the thing anymore.

She and I row a double sometimes, and she has a beautiful smooth stroke and a fine competitive spirit.

And she looks after sculling equipment with the same care she took with the lab equipment.

We all love having her around.
