Don't forget, the Polar Bear swim in the Mon on New Year's Day. Your PICL is going to be in bed under an electric blanket--but don't let that deter you.


Happy Christmas!

To all Paddlefish and all of our friends.

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season and a well-earned couple of days' break from those erg and core work-outs (but no skimping on the Kettle Bells!)

Merry Christmas!


some lovely pics of the Allegheny...

...in this SlideShow. Some of rowers, although none showing the dragon boat - but still, it's pretty.
Take a gander :)



Carolyn F...

From Millvale to Doha-
we're sending
happy birthday wishes across the miles and time zones. We wish we were there to celebrate with you!


From the Other Side of the World

From Doug:

I wanted to pass this picture of Carolyn that I took when I saw her in Doha--saying, yes, there IS Starbucks in Doha. She's fine and looking forward to a trip back, in March I think it is.


A little video montage to the biathlon ladies :)

This Saturday we had a record number of dragon boaters compete at the Central Catholic Biathlon - 11 in total, including 6 Paddlefish and 5 friends from Steel City Dragons (the Paddlefish were Mina, Ada, Marie, Carolyn, Rachel & Jonathan - with a special shout-out to Sophie Jan, who trained with the rest of us, but was cruelly kept away by work...)

Particular kudos to all of those who were doing it for the first time - everyone was amazing and looked strong throughout.

I think I even heard a couple of the girls yell "Peeeeeenaaaaaaaannnnnngggg"
as they crossed the finish line ;)

and Ada received the compliment of the day from a college sophomore: "I hope I'm just like you when I'm your age!" (hence the 'Ada Shuffle' dance that followed ~~>)
