Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Rio Salado Rowing Club had an introductory class where they taught us how to row a sweep-oared boat with eight people! We practiced on a rowing machine first to get our technique down and then we got a chance to go on the water. There is a lot to it - we were told it takes about two years for someone to become a good rower. I believe it after trying it! It surprisingly took more leg strength, than arm strength to row. It was so much fun!

You are so adventurous and so lucky that physical endeavors seem to be the ones dearest to your heart! The Wii fit is as much as I seem able to handle at the moment--and rowing? Well, keep us in pictures so I can row through you.
