A very long time ago, I was in a bad car accident, & then was soon after diagnosed with "Cerebellar Degeneration" in which my condition is supposed to get progressively worse over-time. Over the years, I have become increasingly uncoordinated, & it can be very painful to walk. In the past, I was unable to exercise like I wanted/needed to... I just couldn't break a good sweat. At that time, I started to withdraw from everything, & just stay home.
A while ago, a good friend said to me that rowing is one of the only exercises that you can get a full-body workout while sitting on your butt. At that very moment, a light bulb turned on in my head, & I thought to myself, " Hey, I can do that! ".
My legs are still weak from a lack of activity over the many moons of life, but they're getting stronger every week from rowing & cycling, Now, I'm able to participate in many of the Concept2 challenges as well as having participated in the: (the Bayada Regatta in Philly - Bronze Medal), (the Crash-Bs in Boston - 2nd Place), the (Southern Sprints in Melbourne - 3x Silvers & 6x Golds), (2022 USRowing Master Nationals Championship in Sarasota - I lucked out & got a GOLD Medal), (Halifax Rowing Association's Summer Regatta in Daytona Beach - a Gold & a Silver) ... God is so good!!!
