Concept2 Fall Team Challenge

Thursday Fall Team Challenge Update

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!
