Head of the Charles

This past weekend was the Head of the Charles (HOCR). HOCR is a big rowing regatta on the Charles River in Boston. We go every year to cheer on the rowers and always stop by the expo to check out the clothes and other fun stuff!

The course on the Charles,  3 miles long and super difficult to steer!




 We also always have to head over to the Concept 2 tent to hold our annual erg competitions and try out any new machines. This year it was the Skierg. It was actually a great full body workout ~ I felt it in my core, arms, and legs and was exhausted after only a few minutes! I will definitely start looking for it at every gym I go to. Luckily our school gym just acquired one,  hopefully I can redeem myself and win the family competition next year!
