Someone I work with has been wanting me to go out and give it a try. So I did.
Started out like a fool tripping up with the oar, not getting my timing down, etc... It is a good workout though! Gets your heart going and was sweating in no time. Its fun just to be out on the water when the sun is out. Everyone on the boat was super patient. I felt dumb... but everyone else has had a first time as well.
A down side. I've got blisters where i didn't even know I could get blisters.
