Just had two newsworthy items come across my computer screen that are worthy of mention.

1. We have purchased another erg. Not brand new, but very lightly used. And a good bit easier on our budget than purchasing one at an indoor regattas! It should be in the “fleet” by the end of next week. For the novices and their parents, our goal is to try to add two per year, while maintaining the ones we have for as long as we can. We are slowly getting there.

2. Experienced rowers will be happy to note that our brand new quad is now in the boathouse. You will recall that the one we had last season was a loaner from Fluid Design because the first attempt at our shell didn’t turn out as they wanted it to. Well, we now have our permanent “Claus Wolter”–and it’s 10kgs lighter than last year’s quad. Now all we have to do is pay it off!!!!

For Friday, we’ll be putting 14 experienced rowers on the ergs and the rest outside for running and Ultimate frisbee. As mentioned last week, we’re going to squeeze out as many days outside as we can before we’re forced indoors for a majority of the time. Those of you yearning for House of Victory, The 300 and weights will have PLENTY of those days to come soon enough. Let’s get out ad enjoy the fresh air while we can!

Almost at the end of week 2. We started with 31 weeks to CSSRA, we’ll be down to 29 starting Monday. Well done. Remember–keep pushing the limits and pace yourselves to finish what you start.

Your body will take you a lot farther than you THINK it will take you—all you have to do is ask it to.
