Two red clay-colored PAC Designs courier bags soon on their way

I was pretty sure that Pat from PAC Designs had retired from the messenger bag-making game but the only good thing about the global Coronavirus pandemic is that she got cabin fever and decided to make some bags. I have been conspiring with her for months and even ordered 2 yards of 1000D clay red CORDURA and mailed it to her so that she could make my handmade, bespoke, courier bags. Here are some photos you can enjoy of the bags in the process of being made. Can you pick out my bags?

This is starting rowing every day for the rest of my life looks like

I don't want to jinx myself—though that's exactly what I am doing—but I feel like I have gotten past the hump and I have prioritized rowing every day, really slowly, but really daily. Yes, I know it's extremely slow, but I reckon it'll speed up this week or next.

That said, I have been thinking about oxygenation since the age of Coronavirus and since I started using a home ventilator, called a CPAP, and I think slow, steady, aerobic, exercise is another form of therapeutic breathing.

Slow rowing is the best medicine for your knees

Neither bicycling nor running give your knees the sort of full range-of-motion they need to warm up and lubricate.
