Spring rowing season is getting started, although it was too cold for anyone to get out on the river today. This year we can’t row as far as usual because of bridge construction, which also impacted our course last year; one bridge recently got finished, and now another project is underway.

That’s all right, though, because we can still get as much exercise by doing more laps on a shorter course. And although the distance does not come out exactly the same, going a bit farther won’t take much longer. That’s often true of many things in life!

Word-art that says "Go the extra mile, it's never crowded."

  1. I am so glad Meg that you see things in positive way. I tried to do the same instead of arguing we can get happy moments by doing small adjustments.
    Have a nice weekend.

  2. I love the way you’ve used the story of this season’s rowing practice to illustrate the quote Meg! If we do that little bit more the rewards will outweigh the extra effort! 🙂

  3. Love that the obstacles of change doesn’t deter your effort and outcome! Thank you for being a positive influence! Warmer is closer than it was last week. 😉

  4. Love your positive attitude…making the best of what we have is a gift!

    • Thanks! We went out and rowed the extra distance when the weather got a bit warmer, and it’s not really a mile — about a kilometer. And turning around more often is not a nuisance if you look at it as an opportunity for more water breaks. 🙂
