5K C2 – 2:01.5 split. What do you suppose a song entitled Lincoln Reviews His Notes might sound like?

Got a row in on the ole C2. Steely Dan – Pretzel Logic for sounds.
Got a 40 min. row in. Very sore now but glad to be indoors as it’s 10º outside at the moment. Chick Corea – Trilogy for listening.
Completed a 40min. row. No music. Just the drone of the flywheel and the afternoon sun shining on me through the window.

Thanks to many incredibly kind and generous people our little fundraiser has been a success, We doubled our original goal!
The rowing part was harder than I thought it would be because I’m older than I want to believe, but I was highly motivated by wonderful people.
I haven’t often had to worry about whether I was going to have food to eat. Many children in the world worry about it every minute of every day. Some of them are right here in front of us.
If children don’t eat, they don’t grow and they don’t learn. They don’t have choices.
Choosing to do something as silly as a rowing marathon is a privilege reserved for those of us who are not hungry.
You kind people are making sure that children have choices. Never lose your generous spirits!
I love you.
Concept 2 Holiday Challenge Day 22 (Final)
I made it. 2x5000m this afternoon to complete 200,000m between Thanksgiving and midnight Christmas Eve. Donors supporting my effort raised almost $1500 for No Kid Hungry.
Thank you everyone for the generosity and the encouragement!
It’s a satisfying feeling.
Concept 2 Holiday Challenge – Day 21
3x5000m. Hard enough. Got marginally faster on each one. Log is here.
Last 10K tomorrow.
I was thinking of trying to stream it but it’s just me here so maybe I’ll try to video the last few minutes and post it afterward. Facinating footage no doubt. 🙂
One 5K row down. Two to go.
