Haven't kept up with this thread too much lately.
Raced at IDR in Philly and it's obvious that I hadn't raced in 4 years, nevertheless for the first time in the single! Will give a better go next summer. At my peak, post college, I was around 215lbs. after being roughly 182 during college rowing/training (195 the following year because of more lifting with my erging). I'm now only 10lbs more than my collegiate weight, right where I was when I graduated, and great for the summertime/beach season. Will be running during the upcoming week (random fact - my 5.5mi loop takes me right past where that "jackass" decided to off himself in a 911 GT3...)
Will probably hit the erg this week and see where I am.

And I agree with these statements 110%.
