All In A Day's ERG: Team Progress Thru 10.2.17

Lunies doing great with 12 days left in the Challenge!


A special shoutout to all on our team who donate blood, and who might be first responders. What a role you all play in times of horrors and chaos - one hopes that each of us would be able to help others. We've talked often about being able to dig deep to get to the next goal, do the right things. I think erging helps us connect to that part of our lizard brains that has the discipline to push through, to learn to be stronger on lots of levels. Thank you all.

Image Augie - World Record Tennis Ball Holder...

Meanwhile, on a lighter note, we turn to a golden retriever's fascination with the tennis ball. I've noted before that Kai (aka Thing 1) lives for tennis ball sessions. She plays with them for awhile and then rips the covers off them. No one can predict when that sudden moment of tennis ball demise might occur. I buy tennis balls by the bunch, with three or four usually spread throughout the house. A few weeks ago, I noted that the tennis balls were disappearing...not a destroyed one in sight. Not in the yard or house. That's when I discovered that Kai was collecting them into the shower in the basement...the door open just enough for her to deposit them. Three were in there. Somehow this seemed clever at the time. Flash forward a couple of weeks, and once again the tennis balls began disappearing. Not in the shower this time. And then the day came to clear out the kitty litter box, and the wire used to hold the door open just enough for Jesse the cat seemed sprung...and there were two tennis balls. Leave a ball, get a treat....urg. Dogs are such dogs. I know.

A Palindrome for Wednesday

Post by just27 » October 4th, 2017, 4:04 pm

I've been remiss with regard to palindromes, since combining the bikeErg and the rower ...
... so, here's a random backward-forward thought to consider:

Today, October 4, is apparently National Taco Day. Who knew!?

A Harvest Moon is always a good omen for Luna-tics.
In case anyone else would like to enjoy it with a little Neil Young...

All In A Few Days of Erging: Team Progress Thru 10.5.17

Post by Kona2 » October 6th, 2017, 6:46 am

Uff da. I think my web page for the c2forum was stuck on permanent "please come back later" despite refreshing...until today when it finally moved on. Often I only have a small window of opportunity to capture and post during a day, and if I can't get it done then...it doesn't happen. Other teams have moved up and we've experienced slippage - lots of heroic efforts to get meters into the team meter piggy bank for the Challenge. In fact, Richard T has earned ONE million challenge meters in the three weeks the Challenge has been in place. That makes him a Challenge Meter Millionaire, an elite group for certain. Wowzer!

ImageImageImage Image

Congratulations, Richard T, on achieving ONE million challenge meters! That's a lot of erg time!
