    Happy Monday everyone! Loving seeing the pictures from Kenya! You guys are amazing! :) Keep up the incredible work.

  8. Big Mike

    Row 2K: 7:05.6 (0:05 off of PR)
    Poor clock management on my part. Started the sprint to the finish around the 350M mark and I definitely had the oomph to have started earlier.

    • Andrew Ho

      Dude, that’s 8 seconds off the leaderboard. Not too shabby…

    • Way to push it Mike!

    • Fake Doug Bell

      Nice job Big Mike. Next time, give me that oomph…

      • Who is this posting above? Great job Big Mike. Can’t remember my time, lord knows I scored big style points (better hair than Ho with untied shoes)

        • Andrew Ho.

          Nice try Fake Fake Doug B, but the real Doug Bell would never say he had better hair than me… impostor!!!

          • I said it and I meant it

          • Andrew Ho.

            Oh yeah, well your avatar is stupid…so there.

          • Big Mike, I don’t even know why you bother w this guy…he’s not even in your league.

          • Andrew Ho.

            OK…words hurt bro. Words hurt.

    • Heather V

      Nice! Was that a PR?

    • sarah wilson

      I love that your time is recorded to the tenth of a second. Colleen, I am so impressed with every single one of your WOD performances in the last couple of months. You are completely on fire!

  24. 2K Row: 7:41 (I just want to be like Mike, Braatz that is)

    Big Bri, inspiring and humbling to row next to you.

  25. Annmarie

    2K Row 8:56, :02PR

  26. 2000m row 8:11. first time. tons of room to improve but I was hoping to come under 9mins and i did.

    looking forward to the challenge.

    Delighted to see Marissa & Colleen getting after it with their leaderboard times. Nice job ladies! Very cool.

  28. Stephan

    2K Row: 7:36.6 First time so I guess its a new PR

  29. marissa

    2000m row: 8:02.7 (PR)

    even though i secretly hoped for a sub-8 time, i am very very happy with this. i really tried to stick to the negative split strategy and it helped immensely. thanks kevin & mdv, and especially lynne for the awesome encouragement!

  30. Katie C.

    2K row: 8:58

    • sarah wilson

      Katie, great consistency through the middle 1k and push during the last 500m.

  34. 2K Row: 7:32

  35. 2K Row: 8:28.7 First time
    Wouldn’t have hit this if I hadn’t been next to Heather V. Great motivation.
    Was beat after this one so definitely need to increase overall fitness to improve the score on it.

    Strokes per minute Splits 25/26/28/29

    1.5 seconds slower than last time:

    12-15-11- 7:53.7 1:54/2.03/2:01/1:54
    Strokes per minute 29/27/28/30

    Cool feature on rowers to record these data point – hit options – memory and magnifying glass and details pop up.

    Thanks Liz for screaming this is the Henley with 200 to go, and wow to Mary for keeping an intense pace next rower over throughout.

    • With your eyes closed, you were at Henley! I’m just glad I didn’t get much slower by the last 500…..
