Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

I had a great experience on Thursday at the Fort Eustis gym. They have a cross-fit area that includes a lot of Concept D machines and also two ski-ergs. After I rowed a little more than 10K on the rower, I managed to knock out 2K on the ski-erg. Man, that was tough! I haven't found any other ski-erg...

Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

Greetings from Fort Eustis, VA! Congratulations to all rowers for an outstanding performance in January's competition. I'm rowing for the Army during the month of February in the Military Challenge, but my meters still count for our team, too. The gym here at Fort Eustis has a couple of the Concept ...

Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

Congratulations, Jim! I just made it to 7 million meters today. All of my recent travels to Charleston, SC and three cities in Texas in the last two weeks left me with a nasty cold. I’m going to look to get to my goal of 150K meters before the challenge ends.

Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

That sounds like a good plan, Jack. I will get back to the gym and on the erg today. I had a challenging commute from the St. Louis airport on Friday afternoon in a snowstorm. I traded my erg muscles for snow-shoveling muscles yesterday (first time since the Bush Administration!). I'm also looking a...

We are one week into the January Challenge. We have 26 rowers signed up, and 23 have contributed meters so far. Here's where we stand: Fre...

I should get 20K in the next two days and will then have to find a rower "on the road" by Christmas Eve. I have already signed up for the January challenge and will also row for the Army during th...

Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

Welcome to your bi-weekly update from the Oldest Chaplain in the Army. The US government shutdown has resulted in the cancellation of my trip to Coronado, CA. The good news: I can keep contributing meters in the coming week; the bad news: you have to put up with my annoying updates! In the grand sch...

Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

Thanks for keeping us posted, Josh! We Texans are suffering with unseasonable cold weather at the moment (it won't be like this in Illinois next year, I'm sure). Congratulations on closing in on 1 million meters for the season and two million lifetime meters! I'm fortunate that the Army expects me t...
