Around the World on a Rowing Machine
by David Lane

On Friday, Aug. 21, at approximately 7:30 AM, Lee Bowman completed rowing 20,037,580 meters, which is halfway around the earth measured at the equator!!!  Lee started keeping track of his rowed meters on May 6, 2002, shortly after the Fitness Center opened.  Andy Baxter, the Fitness Director at MM at the time, challenged him to get to 100,000 meters and then to 1,000,000 meters, and by then he "was hooked".  It wasn't till Lee got to 18 or 19 million meters that he decided that his goal would be halfway around the globe. 
 

 All that exercise has done more than just giving Lee some awe-inspiring bragging rights: he's lost 30 lbs (rather than gaining the way most of us do as we age), his cholesterol is good without meds, and his resting heart rate is in the mid 60's.  His health insurer loves him.  Most mornings you can find Lee at the Fitness Center working on getting the rest of the way around the world. When you see him, congratulate him and let him know that you will support him for the next 20 million meters.
