I bought my Concept2 Indoor Rower back in 2001 and received it in the first week of December—just in time for the Holiday Challenge!
After successfully completing the 200k I was hooked. I've logged over 12 million meters since and always look forward to the Holiday Challenge to get me back into a competitive mood. Some days are hard to start rowing, but those are the days that reward the most at the finish. For now, I'm rowing toward 20 million. Thanks to the online community for all the encouragement and competition.
