April marathon: Row for the Red Cross!

It is (mostly) official now.   The marathon in April will be used to help raise money for the Red Cross.  I am in the process of working out the details with the local chapter, but they are behind it.  I am very excited about it and am looking to get as many people involved as possible.   Hopefully I can hook up with some of the local high school and college crew teams and see if I can get any of them involved.  But even if it is just me and my CrossFit friends rowing, it will be (dare I say) fun, and it will be good to know that we are helping out a worthy cause.

I got a double-dose of rowing in today.  My morning 10K went great - I broke the 44:00 minute mark the day after I broke the 45:00 mark.  Somehow I think it will take me more than 4 more days to get below 40:00! :-)

This evening there were two 1K rows mixed in to the WOD.  With 50 burpee box jumps and 50 pull ups mixed in.   Gotta say that that last 1K row was a beast!

Two rowing workouts in one day...  a pretty good day, I'd say.
