to rowing a marathon. I didn’t know until after the row that @concept2inc
gives you a pin and certificate for completing this! I think that is so nice of them to do. There is also a ranking for people who have completed this, and to my extreme surprise in my age group in the USA for females, I am ranked #1
(across the world I am ranked 4th-last time I checked anyway)! I know this is not the best time and someone will knock me out of that spot (verified scores), but this is something I will be proud of forever. As silly as that seems, considering where I started my fitness journey this is pretty cool. I don’t train specifically on rowing, so to go into a marathon row and get this kind of time is a true test to fitness and mental grit (because I definitely reached a dark place during this row haha thanks @lisa.3737
for getting me out of it). Video is of my last 100m-my facial expressions and sweat say it all! 😩😐😭☠️
I love rowing and will always incorporate into my training. It’s great for so many reasons!
If there is one thing I do have, it is perseverance! Things get tough and you gotta get through it. We always have a choice. We can choose to give it our all or we can choose to give up. I am by FAR a great athlete in any sense. We never know what we are capable of until we try. You can’t grow as an individual (whether in sport, attitude, or life in general) if you stay within your comfort zones. I am thankful for my support system; both past and present.
