Usually I try to balance hyrdation, caffeine, and food so that I am fueled, right on the cusp of an empty stomach at the starting line, don’t have excess water weight in my body, don’t have to run to the … More An unconventional pre-race meal?
Facebook’s new “recommended pages” algorithm gets pretty interesting as it tries to figure out what I might “like.” I clicked through the whole list to see what it would come up with. Vibram FiveFingers. Check. Various surfing pages. Check. Blame Laird. Various Microsoft-related pages. Check. Nothing related to rowing. Really?
