I rowed my last two years in college at The University of the South in Sewanee, TN. Although it's not the same as being on the water, I love Concept2's for being the next best thing. I've erged to stay in shape while living in New York, North Carolina, Seattle, and now Montana. It's a great stress reliever after my 140-mile daily commute, keeps me fit for ski season in the winter, and rowing a drift boat in the summer, and now I've gotten my boyfriend hooked, too! After struggling to make it to the gym all last winter, we decided to invest in our own Model D, and love the convenience of rowing at home. Keep up the challenges!
