You are all amazing and energizing, though some achievements, like Ed's, leave me floored...
Missed the Forum for some time, though worked hard to get to the 200k meters needed for the antler lights during the last minutes alloted for te challenge :wink:.
Hope to qualify for the paddle in the Virtual Team Challenge :) .

Happy rowing!

Andrea

Speaking of forces gathering...the coyotes are marching down the berm as duos and trios...apparently it's mating season from January - March. Lovely.

Ed, you are a true LUNATIC!!!

Image Image Yep...Lunies putting our hearts into this Challenge!

We have ANOTHER canoe in the virtual waters of Moon River!

Image Another episode....and a chance to learn more about yourself...

I listen to books when I'm rowing, and a recent one is by a guy named Shawn Achor. It's a business book called The Happiness Advantage. (Don't get thrown off by the title - I was drawn to listening to it because I'm an optimist, and look for ways to introduce more happy into my world.) His bottom line is that happier people are more successful...not success brings happiness. He's a young Harvard guy, a positive psychology researcher now turned consultant. And since I know that this is not enough of a hook for most of you due either to time constraints or interests, I'm including a link to a synopsis...and the more important TED talk (this guy talks fast but is SO entertaining). What's a TED talk? From TED website: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Shawn Achor's talk is one of the top 20 TED talks.

In any given day, there are SO many things and bits of info that try to wrestle your psyche into the minus column. Some jobs/careers reward those who are good at figuring out what could go wrong, and showcase how important it is to look for mistakes..or fix them. Thing is, that mindset can flip into the rest of your life, too. I had lots of roles that required critical thinking. And so it is that I look for the happiness boosters, things that counterbalance. Turns out that using your signature character strengths (we have those?!) is one way to give happiness a boost. The nonprofit that came up with a way to identify these 24 character strengths is called VIA Character, and they offer up a well-vetted free survey to show what your character strengths are. Everyone wants to know more about themselves. It takes about ten minutes - try it during a break. http://www.viacharacter.org Then, armed with more info about things you're GOOD at, you can see what happens when you incorporate using one of your top five signature strengths into your day.

By the way...exercise is one of those happiness boosters! Keep smiling!

Hooboy! The ArMOONda is surely growing! Our fleet numbers 21 at this time, with more canoes poised on the edge of Moon River ! Today we've got a bathtub (Andrew!), a paddle (Ron), and three new canoes (Janice, Angelo, Tim V). AJ also gave Patrick Heiser a caricature so I've put the newly minted Patrick H into his canoe. Great work AJ!

Weird. RowPro says it's uploaded my rows, yet they aren't in my logbook. I was wondering why mine didn't show up on Kona's list this week.

Guess I'll have to go through the settings to make sure something didn't get messed up.
