Fabio and his Canoe

Post by Kona2 » January 10th, 2013, 10:52 am

Yes, I hear that Fabio's been practicing shooting the rapids (easier in a kayak than a canoe, so some skill definitely involved here) so that he can have that wind-blown look for the next photo shoot...fortunately, he's got an oar....and you know, I think his hair has grown in the last 100K ! :lol: Way to row, Richard...I mean, Fabio!

And, while I am pretty sure that Richard's Fabio isn't his alter ego, there are some great examples of fun alter egos: a favorite is from a comic strip by an illustrator/author Pat Brady who writes "Rose Is Rose." Rose is a suburban housewife and mom who turns into Biker Chick Vicki every so often. The following link is a good one to show just how this transformation can happen...

Just realized that Anita rowed across the 100K with a half marathon ... so there's a half moon on the bow of her canoe!

Well I was planning on being more productive for the Virtual team challange, but I've been sick with the flu :(

I tried rowing last night, but my lungs are shot. Hopefully i'll be back rowing soon!

Hope you feel better soon! For perspective, there's still one more team Challenge...it's the grand finale....the World Erg Challenge!

It was a race to get the graphics ready before Laurie made it across the 100K milestone and into her canoe...! (Actually, AJ had them ready almost immediately but it sounded more dramatic to say it the other way... :lol: )

All In A Day's ERG: Team Progress Thru 1.9.13

Post by Kona2 » January 10th, 2013, 7:28 pm

Image Day 10 or 11 of 31...row ...then row a little more !

Team Standings - THANK YOU all for rowing with us!
Pos. Team Team Type Total Event Meters Team Members Average Meters
1 Age Without Limits Virtual Club 15,237,817 295 51,654
2 Community Rowing, Inc On-Water Club 8,056,131 351 22,952

4 Free Spirits Virtual Club 5,837,410 137 42,609
5 Riverside On-Water Club 5,472,518 106 51,628

Image And to all our teammates who are fighting off the flu or other ailments, take the time you need to heal ! There are MANY challenges throughout the year (including the rowing ones), and this is all for fun and exercise (and motivation and and and). It's great when you check in and let us know what's happening. I know several teammates are on the recovery list. Lots on the US news about the Boston area being under siege with the flu virus (wipe down the rowing equipment when you get on it and when you leave it - especially at the gym).

Meanwhile, the Challenge of rowing a LOT more has been a kicker for me. Whew. How do people find time for all those meters - well, some of them probably row a lot faster than me.

Season meters as of 253/365 = 117,057,380 m

Total meters on the day = 678,989 m

Oars in space (participation) = 38 percent

If anyone knows of someone with a fascination for numbers (wink wink), this article about a couple from Massachusetts who picked a wedding date to match their town's zip code might be of interest: http://www.newburyportnews.com/communit ... de-wedding.
I still have a ways to go before I join the Armoonda, but I think I might be able to make out the sound of distant paddles.
Best wishes for those who are hurting right now... There might be be a boat in the Armoonda for someone with the qualifications to address whatever be ailin' ya (Thank Goodness, there are no yardarms in a canoe):
