Zach and Bender took a shot at the tandem rowing and made it look easy. We saw several others give it a try and it's definitely a lot harder than it looks!
Jennie and Brittany had the first go at the 2000k row. They both finished within a second of each other.
Then Bill, Matt, Jason, Ryan and I had our turn at the 2000k row.
I took 2nd place in the Novice Men with a row time of 6:46.7 which was also a new personal record and new Fort record edging out Boyd's old time of 6:46.8 - nice! Matt finished right behind me and took 3rd. We both were trumped by an old czechoslovakian guy who didn't seem to speak much english. He pulled a 6:41 and made it look easy. After the row, I immediately started to cramp up and took at least 10 minutes to recover. It just about killed me!
Bill, Zach, Bender and I teamed up for the men's relay race and took first place.
Bill put together a couple of coed teams as well. Team 1 included Jennie, Brittany, Matt and Zach. Team 2 included Stephanie, Deb, Ryan and Jason. Both teams did great and team 1 took first in the coed team relay.
I have to wonder what all those rowers thought of our group. We cleaned up! Check out all the medals :)
