My proposed routes to commute to the Potomac Boat Club from Columbia Heights
May 27, 2019
Like I proposed yesterday, I will try to spend a lot more time at the Potomac Boat Club boathouse in DC and I propose to get there and back on my Surly Steamroller. There are three routes that I have been able to come up with for this trip that I might choose between or try and then choose one or maybe choose which one to use depending on time and weather.
My latest plan for getting fit fast
May 26, 2019
I plan to spend my workdays at my sports club since they have Wi-Fi, someplace nice to work, air conditioning, lots of changes to work out, and it’s far from access to junk food. It’s also around lots of fit people, I pay dues, and I’ll pedal bicycle the 4.6 miles there and the 4.6 miles home. Perfect!

I had another sinus headache from just not staying hydrated enough overnight again so I didn’t really start rowing until late–almost 8 PM. Then, I only got in 7,733 meters.

September 18, 2018

Membership in the Potomac Boat Club Concept2 Team is Empowering
March 25, 2018
The Concept2 virtual team challenge, World Erg Challenge, is ten-days old and I’ve only clocked 24,607 meters so far–but I am still mid-pack in the Potomac Boat Club. For context, challenge leader, Parker Sheppard, has clocked 126,445 meters–more than 100,000 meters ahead of me. But I am picking up and am hopeful and am also having fun and am […]
Out of the frying pan onto water
July 21, 2016
Remember when I was running 5ks? It seems like only yesterday I was literally kicking ass and taking names at 9Round Penrose and doing Pacers-sponsored 5k races. Well, that took a break. I caught some sort of bug and tried to use my human immune system to fight off the invading armies with sleep, liquids, […]
