We here at RowingRelated would like to say thanks to everyone who has helped us to get started, even if it meant simply reading an article we've posted to the site. Having started the site just under three months ago (on October 11th, 2010), the hope was that the rowing community, which we feel is both intelligent and extremely dedicated, might appreciate a closer look at many of the things that often get taken for granted, as well as a fresh take on training regimens, technique, and the everyday. So far, we have been humbled to have received over 10,000 visitors (over 2,000 of whom have come from abroad), as well as some great feedback, and we want to say thanks for making our fledgling venture a success thus far. There is much, much more to come in 2011, and we look forward to sharing our opinions, thoughts and ideas with all of you as we begin the new year.
I'd like to extend a special thank you to Sean Wolf of Rowing Illustrated, Rebecca Caroe of Rowperfect, everyone at Rower's Edge, Crash-B Sprints, and Concept2, as well as Chiara Ferrara of the Rowing Daily, Göran R. Buckhorn of "Hear the Boat Sing," and Sara-Mai Conway of Flywheel Fitness for their help in spreading the word.
Thanks again, and check back often! We'll be hard at work putting together more of the opinionated, to-the-point content that got us here in the first place, and we've got a few things up our sleeve that we think you'll enjoy.
Bryan Kitch and the RowingRelated Editorial Staff.
