Hello Padre,
Yeah I am very familiar with the St Louis airport. BTW the way my wife is from St Louis but I met her here in south Texas. I have never shoveled snow in my life and sometimes wonder what kind of a workout that would be.

Just hit 20 Million Meters. It does not get any easier as I get older!
Congratulations on your milestone Jim as that is quite an accomplishment.

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.

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 Ski erg machines. I don't know if I'm coordinated enough to make sense of it yet. Fortunately they have lots of Concept 2 machines so I can keep up my meters for the next few days before flying back to the St. Louis area (weather permitting!). Let's get ready to do great things during the March-April competition!

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-ergs in my travels yet, but I hope to incorporate that workout into my routine. Really good stuff!

I always wanted to try the ski-erg. It really seems like it would be a great workout.

Wow... what happened to this team?

It's probably been assimilated by the FaceBorg collective.
