FISA 2010 World Masters Rowing Regatta

Sep 09, 2010

Pete, Dick, Mike Strong and I spent much of the last week up in St. Catharines, Ontario, for the 2010 World Masters Rowing Regatta. Pete, Dick and I were all competing as well as working at the Concept2 oar service trailer, which meant that Mike was often left holding down the fort solo. Luckily, he’s an experienced “C2 roadie” and ably handled the load until we were back to help. Thanks, Mike! Continue Reading ›

An Update on the Dynamic Erg

I have great respect for good biathletes who are able to ski fast and come into the range and hit lots of targets. To read more about the sport and the US Biathlon team, visit Continue Reading ›

Our Trip to Belarus

Jul 30, 2010

I recently returned from a week-long trip to Belarus, of which a good half of the time was spent traveling or waiting in lines in the Polish-Belarussion border. You might well ask what prompted such a crazy trip. I went to watch the Under 23 World Rowing Championships in Brest, Belarus with Concept2 co-founder Dick Dreissigacker, who is also my husband. It was partly a business trip and partly a personal trip, as I’ll explain. Continue Reading ›
