I Ran 3 Miles Today!

And in only slightly less exciting news, on Saturday, Number One Daughter's BF's team won the silver medal at the 2007 Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championships.

The Stanford men's varsity eight boat tied for SECOND Saturday ... to record the highest finish in Stanford's history. Stanford's time of 5:34.125 equaled Harvard's showing as both clubs were just six-tenths of a second behind winner Washington (5:33.165) in a dramatic race.


(#1 is Stanford, #2 Harvard, #3 Washington. What a finish! CLARIFICATION: Those are the boats' lane positions, not finishing positions!)

(Showing off the hardware! Or, err, something!)

(L-R, U. of Wisconsin coxswain, the BF, and NOD.)

3 miles! Awesome! And silver to NOD is not too shabby either - excellence is obviously in her genes. You go!

That's a beautiful park where they held the regatta. Rowing is such an exciting sport. I went there to watch my nephew race at the preparatory school level a week earlier and a wag at work asked me, So, tell me, is, uh, watching rowing as exciting as watching a 26.2 mile race?
