I am Irish but live in the Netherlands. I used to row quite a bit but after moving to another country it took a long while to get settled and back into a routine. Working in IT, which involves plenty of sitting, I enjoy blowing off the cobwebs on my trusty rowing machine as often a possible. I am by no means a serious contender but try to push my time or distance up a notch every week or two. Joining a virtual club has really got me spurred on to row as often as I can and contribute to the overall team effort.
