Meet the 30-year-old attempting to row 6,000 miles across the Pacific


Sonya Baumstein

Sonya Baumstein is about to embark on a fitness challenge of epic proportions—the 30-year old is planning to row by herself from Japan to San Francisco.

How exactly does a person train for that besides hitting City Row?

Well, “in 2012, she biked from Mexico to San Francisco. In 2013 she used a standup paddleboard to travel across the Bering Strait. And in the winter of 2011, she rowed 2,600 miles with three male rowers from Spain to Barbados,” reports CNN.

Baumstein’s latest mega adventure over 6,00o miles could take up to 6 months, so she’ll be carrying a literal ton of food with her, along with medicine, and, we hope, lots of sunscreen.

If she succeeds, Baumstein will be the first woman to ever successfully complete the long trek from west to east across the Pacific. And then maybe our future rowing instructor?? —Sarah Sarway
