The Peanut Butter Cup in action. Woot!

Friday, October 30, 2009


This is what happens when you need to get to Van Dusen before they close--you end up have to take work conference calls from the boathouse. (And I finally gave Rob photo credit. :)

So how do you get through this? Have lots of friends, go lots of places, do things you weren't planning on doing, and take pictures. LOTS of pictures. The Too Much Is Never Enough Tour is now officially over. Life's too short to sit in a corner and suck on your thumb.

Kona, Queen K Highway, December 2006. Because this is what I am going to remember, and not some stupid hospital room in Durham. I will also remember Boulder (all four trips), running in Montana, watching the sunset on Maui, riding a road bike for the first time, racing my first triathlon, making chocolate covered everything, Gromit and Wallace (because that's how you looked at it), watching Ratatouille 1.5 times, and a whole lot of little inside jokes that only the two of us would get. I'll remember finding out that two and a half months is really not enough time to train for the Boston Marathon, but being glad I got to do it, anyway. I'll remember thinking about you during the run at the Timberman 70.3, and getting goosebumps in the middle of an 80-degree August afternoon. I'll remember racing with your name on my oar at the Head of the Charles. And I'll remember all the friends that we made along the way, and all the friends that helped me maintain some semblance of sanity over the last two years.

Thank you for everything, Margs.

Just another epic sunset. No big deal.

Thanks for the ride, Rob!

You may call him Evan, but Corinne will call him "Dad". I wonder why he looks so frazzled. :) Congratulations!

Dave requested that his picture be put on the blog. Because he didn't just wear those tights to be warm. :)

I believe the only Riverside winner at this year's HOCR, and a very, very, very deserving one. Congratulations, Liane!

By the time the men's Great Eight raced, conditions changed a touch.

And even in the very next race, the women's Great Eight got even more flakes.

"I think I'll climb back into my boat again and get me a Charles medal." Nice race, G!

I think stoke and four are a little overqualified for the alumni eight. :)

Couldn't resist posting this one. Too cool.

I give you the mayhem.

In light of the weather and the mayhem, a nice, peaceful shot of Walden Pond. :)
(Mayhem photos may be posted later).

Another bonus wildlife shot.

Once again proving that there's more to life than coaching and regatta directing. :)

SUPER bonus wildlife shot. Taken during a company outing at NARA Park in Acton this afternoon.

Ilse, a little chilly this morning?

Tuesday, October 13, 2009


Clearly not taken today. I promised John he'd make a triumphant return to the blog. :)

Looks worse than it was, but it's that time of the year. Watch yourself!

Sunday, October 11, 2009


My friend Peter ran the BAA Half Marathon. I was worried about being able to spot him. I shouldn't have been. :)

Bonus wildlife shot! Taken at Beaver Brook State Reservation.

Start of the third Head of Kevin. You really have to be there to appreciate the madness. So I brought the Elph with me for a ride. :)

Weeks on the way to the boathouse this morning.

It was a little bumpy this morning. But at least it wasn't raining!

Wednesday, October 07, 2009


Do I really need to say anything?

Tuesday, October 06, 2009


It's getting to be about that time.

Dawn patrol. Two members of the Wayward Scullers Group (TM) prepare for pieces on Friday morning. Cam, can you identify these two clowns?

Sunday, October 04, 2009



Riverside. Now open seven days a week. You can decide which one of them is the bonus wildlife shot. :)
