Concept2 Fall Team Challenge

Good and happy news for my Tuesday Fall Team Challenge update

I got in 10,085 meters today and got in some much faster power-10s and power-20s and was able to bring down my pace down to a 1:50-2:02 pace. It’s not reflected in the log below but I am sure it’ll start manifesting in greatness, speed, and power down the road as I just get physically stronger, fitter, with bigger lungs and a stronger heart. I believe!

I lost my first position in the Potomac Boat Club team boat to Michael McGuirk so I doubled-down and chased down the 76-year old Bel Air, MD, resident who has been kicking my butt since day one.

McGuirk‘s my paceman. He inspires me and I hope, one day, to meet him. I mean, we belong to the same boat club, right?  I feel like I have a little bit of room between Paul Holland and me–but all he needs to do, at 39, is get on his seat for three or four hours and I’m toast.

Globally, across the Fall Team Challenge, PBC is 148th (from 145th)

148Potomac Boat ClubOn-Water579,477m1441,391m

Compared to other on-water clubs with 6-20 members, we’re back to 11th from 10th:

Personally, compared to everyone, I am 828th (my apartment number), up from 877 (woot!):

And, then, compared to only on-water clubs, I am 46th (up from 52nd):

I’m very happy with the results. Thanks to Michael and all of you for your motivation, support, help, and encouragement! Mahalo!
