We have a new State Champion in Minnesota in......

Concept 2 Rowing.

Yes, Adam Harmer took first place at the competition down in Rochester today. He used his skills as a runner/pacer to row a smart race.

2 Kilometers in 6:49. That is the time I now have to beat running on Tuesday morning.

Great job Adam.

On a funny note, he said a lot of the guys there were dressed in all of this technical gear. Hmmm, why would you need aerodynamic clothing for a stationary rower? And it's not like wicking clothes will help you in a 7 minute competition. Oh well, maybe I am ignorant. Okay, strike the maybe.

I'm too lazy to do the math. What pace would you have to run at in miles?? Have you been doing any speedy runs with your crossfit stuff?

It is about a 5:20 pace.

Nice job Adam!!!!

Matt - good luck Tuesday! That will be a nice run if you can knock it out...

As it happens I'll be in Vegas that day - perhaps I should try to get of your cash back?? How about setting up odds on you repeating that 5:20 pace for the final 2K at Zumbro? Heck, even for the first 2K...

PS will you be wearing technical gear?
