Snow & Satisfaction 2014

Monday, September 01, 2014

Not all that much sailing this year. Tyler and I have only done a few F18 events with a few more at the end of the season. It amounts to more or less a year off for us. We should be back in force next year. This is not to say we've been sitting around on the couch all summer. TeamF18 managed to win the scaled division at the Megaladon Mashup crossfit competition this weekend.

1: First day sailing this year and off to a late start. Nice afternoon sailing with Brooks in Newport.

Over and above any considerations of performance for sports, exercise is the stimulus that returns our bodies to the conditions for which they were designed. Humans are not physically normal in the absence of hard physical effort. Exercise is not a thing to fix a problem- it is a thing we must do anyway, a thing without which there will always be problems. Exercise is the thing we must do to replicate the conditions under which our physiology was – and still is- adapted, the conditions under which we are physically normal. ….And merely normal, for most worthwhile humans, is not enough. – Mark Rippetoe

49: Snow & Satisfaction

Finished 9th at the Snow. Started out very slow getting last in the first race but slowly remembering how to sail a 420. The final race was a fun windy-enough-to-open-the-stern-ball race.
