Thursday Fall Team Challenge Update
September 27, 2018
At least I am getting some meters in. Slow but sure. Wish me luck. All goes well! Commitment, dedication, and hard word—perserverance—is indeed rewarded. And I learned something: while the top competitors in a Concept2 challenge row hard and far every day of the challenge, everyone else is like the people who join a gym for their new year’s resolution: they’re hot and heavy for a week and then it all goes to pot. Life is just a game of last man standing, I guess. Lesson learned.
I’ve added 15,703 meters in the last two days to the 59,508 meters I had accrued. The Concept2 log tells me that equals a total accumulation of challenge meters of 75,211 meters. So, I am 37.6055% of the way towards the 200,000 meters I need to collect by October 15. Which means I need to average 6,932 meter-per-day through midnight on the 15th.
My team, Potomac Boat Club, has rowed 406,978 meters. I’m still #2!

|11||Maidstone Invicta RC Onliners||On-Water||396,042m||16||24,753m|
And, personally, here’s my global performance (previously 1,094th):
|984||Chris Abraham||M||48||Potomac Boat Club||75,211m|
And here’s my performance based on only on-water rowers (previously 72nd)

I feel happy with this progress. Keep wishing me luck! It’s working!
