     Hey there everyone. A glorious day it is... at least for me. If its a crappy day for you, well... stop being a Grinch dammit! Only 32 shopping days Christmas! Well, I have a great gift for you guys to give. How about a charitable donation. This one will not hurt your wallet... but might hurt your legs.

I know to keep your eye on the ball, but this is ridiculous!

     So, Concept2, the makers of the Rowing machines we have in the box, and the increasingly popular Ski Erg, have issued a challenge leading up to this Christmas. This is what we got going on:

  • Row or Ski 100,00 or 200,00 meter between 25 November to 24 December.
  • Individual challenge
  • Anyone who rows 100k will receive $.02, to their charity, per kilometer rowed. 
  • Any additional kilometers, $.04 will be donated per kilometer.

     Last year, for the same challenge, over 1 BILLION meters were rowed/skied! Almost 28,000 dollars were raised, and this year they hope to pass 30,000. Anyone who completes 100k will receive a down-loadable certificate and the option to buy gear from 3rd party vendors, finishers of 200k will receive that as well... and a pin. But really, why are we doing this anyway? Charity.

      I'm going to be shooting to complete the 200K. I've done 140K in one month before, and it's no easy task. So who else is with me?! Come on guys, lets finish this year off right.

3,2,1 Row!
