Erging in Union Station

December 15, 2011

Jeff Rowing in Union Station

Today my crew team was doing an ergathon in Union Station (for those not from Chicago, Union Station is where Amtrak and Metra trains come in, bringing both commuters and people traveling from further). So my workout consisted of doing an hour of rowing there. I was there from 10-11 AM, so it wasn’t super busy. Still, I saw several people watching us as they passed by and a few of them stopped to talk. Four even decided to donate money to row for 10 minutes.

I love days like this. Yes, they don’t always fit neatly into other workout plans. But they offer variety, a change of pace. And how many people can say they’ve rowed in the middle of a major train station?
