Star awarded Tako. Congrats on the new milestone =D> =D>

It's been a bit quiet on the board recently. Maybe there will be a flurry of activity now you've kicked it back into life!

Hi Plummy - I passed 31m this morning - the first row was 8th November 2003

If I've burnt 2m+ calories why aren't I thinner? (Rhetorical question)

A day late but finished it off this morning. You wouldn’t guess there was a six month break in the smooth looking season over season numbers.

Please may I have my 21st star. Just managed 2 in a season, this took 10 months when the previous took 28. Will be very hard pressed to do that next year!

Well done Iain, nice work on getting 2 in one season. Moved you up a place on the board as well. I don't think Peter S does many/any metres these days so he's there ahead of you to be passed fairly easily ;-)

Many thanks, but another million seems far from an easy prospect at the moment! I would like to make 25mm before I am 60 'though.

After a slow and wobbly 11,555 Meters today, I landed exactly on 5 Million lifetime meters. May I request a Gold Star, please?

Well done Colin. Star awarded (no move up the table though, so it looks like you'll have to carry on to the next one ;-) )

Yes, those are erg only meters. How many otw meters I have is hard to tell. I started rowing otw in 1982. In those days there was no thing like an online logbook (paper only :D ), but I guess that as a teenager I rowed between 1 and 2 million meters per year. During army and university I didn't row at all. I restarted rowing otw about 25 years ago. There were years I rowed only a little and there were years (like the past four/five years) when I rowed about 3 million meters per season (otw only). So I think it's fair to say the total average since I started is 1 million meters per year, adding up to a total of 40 million meters otw.
