40-4-40 Challenge Concept2 40-minute 40th anniversary

Just completed my 40-minute 40-4-40 Concept2 40th anniversary challenge!

I just completed the first ever — and probably only — 40-4-40 “pop-up” Challenge that Concept2 spontaneously launched on November 2.  The challenge was simple: row for 40-minutes on November 6th in honor of Concept2’s 40th anniversary.
