The Holiday Challenge is approaching quickly. Last year, I rowed 100,000 in the challenge period and I hope to duplicate that effort this year. It is as simple as a 5k per day for 20 days in a month. I don’t enjoy the grind of a 5k, so I break it up into 1ks or 2ks or even 500m efforts. I prefer the HIIT paradigm rather than the LSD paradigm.

The presidential election is today. Please use your opportunity to vote. May your candidate win (unless he is not my candidate 🙂 ).
