Battle for the riverbed

  #
The St. Lawrence River defines us, a constant in the story of our island city and a thread running through Quebec’s history. Literally marking the borders of Montreal, this great river has inspired songwriters and novelists, historians and naturalists, cyclists, walkers and that lone stroller along the water’s edge.  More...

GREAT LAKES STATES BY THE NUMBERS: Indiana

  #
I finally had an excuse to research the term that puzzles so many of us non-Indianans: Hoosier. All I could find, though, was that it's a word of unknown origin meaning, "Land of Indians." If anyone from Indiana has anything better, let the rest of us know!

Indiana has 45 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, and while much of it consists of dunes and wetlands, so much of it is industrialized that the EPA considers it "one of the principal areas of concern" in the Great Lakes Basin. More than half of Indiana's border is water: the Ohio River and Lake Michigan. Indiana has 35,000 miles of rivers and streams, 100,000 acres of inland lands (and some of the best country roads in the nation, not to mention great courthouses).  more...

A New Spin

  #

Whether it’s for cross-training or rehabilitation purposes, most rowers will train on the bike at some point in their careers. And virtually all of them will notice just how different exertion on the bike feels in comparison to exertion on the erg. Those who base their training off of heart rate often notice that effort and heart rate don’t correlate the same way on the bike, and those who train with wattage meters on the bike occasionally wonder how the wattage they produce on the bike compares to their power output on the erg. As it turns out, a few researchers have noticed the difference too.  more...

Competitors flex mussels in first round of SmackDown!

GREAT LAKES STATES BY THE NUMBERS: New York

  #
New York is the first state we've featured that has ocean shoreline, as well as lake and river shoreline. There are 7,600 lakes and ponds here, over 70,000 miles of rivers and streams. New York has 17 different watersheds. It borders two Great Lakes, and between them is awe-inspiring Niagara Falls. There are 77 miles of Lake Erie shoreline, 331 along Lake Ontario. Erie and Ontario are both Iroquois words, Erie meaning "long tail" (referring to cats, and meaning by extension Cat People. Gotta love that!) Ontario means "beautiful water." more...

  #
fuel_17-8

But transit troubles and gastrointestinal (GI) concerns are all too common among athletes, particularly those who run. An estimated 30 to 50 percent of distance runners experience exercise-related intestinal problems.  more...

  #
Lake sturgeon have long been part of the Great Lakes ecosystem and, up until the late 1800s, used the Milwaukee River as spawning grounds. But the fish took multiple blows - overfishing, passages blocked by man-made dams, not to mention a polluted river system.  more...
