Over the next 27 days the plan is to row 200,000 meters. This is part of a Christmas challenge done each year by Concept 2. There are a number of variations, but my plan is to do the 200k.

Back in October I did their Halloween challenge and rowed 30,000 meters over 7 days. I managed pretty well over the challenge and was looking forward to the Christmas one.

The great thing about this one is that for every 1,000 meters I row Concept 2 will donate $.02 to the designated charity of my choice (from a list they provide). The reason I chose to do 200k is that when I reach 100k they will double what they donate – $.04 / meter.

I am looking for to the challenge as it is Day 1 and I’ve already completed my first meters. Plan is to record each day too.
