Though a lonely place to be...it's great that we have 4 boats now!! Everyone wants a piece of our action!!
Anne--you're sweet, but...not so sure about your prediction. This sprinting stuff, I don't know...
I have my erg up on the second floor of my cape cod house (slanted ceilings,) so I really appreciate all the warnings!!
Just in time for the Baltimore Burn--guess what Baltimore weather is calling for tomorrow ALL DAY?!?!?! Up to 10 inches of snow. Now those of you who live in NORMAL cities will think, "oh well, no big deal," but HA! you're wrong. Here, the entire city will shut down--every store will be out of milk and bread by 4:00 this afternoon, I kid you not. Sometimes, only sometimes, will there be canned food still left on the shelves. Having lived in Germany, London and Chicago, the whole attitude toward snow is hysterical! (ok 10 inches is a bit much, but...) we've had school closing because of the possibility of snow and the day ends up being beautiful!
Anyhow, enough of that rant. Wonder what they'll do for the Burn? I made all of the T-shirts and they say "February 11, 2006" on them
I have to say I have been obsessing over: "should I go out at a 1:54? Or a 1:53, if I go at a 1:54, there's a chance it'll slip into a 1:55, but if I go out at a 1:53..." and SO ON and so forth at 2:00 in the morning!!! I just have to beat my PB--I've been training for 3 months for this thing. Noone has ever accused rowers of being on the OCD side of normal!
Anyhow, keep up the good work all, and welcome to the new members!
Tom, it's up to you and me, Babe...let's mosey on up to at least 3 boat...(no harm intended to you all, of course
(Ok, so I wanted this emotocon to go up after the t-shirt bit, but it went down here--how do I make sure it goes where I want it? In the meantime, you will just have to imagine it is in its intended location
