Tall Adventures: How can we HELP you get to the Head of the Charles?

October 31st, 2013

HOTC 2013


The Head of the Charles Regatta is one of the greatest 2 day athletic events in the world and a favorite pastime for our family. Held in Boston MA on October 19th and 20th, over 300,000 people came to see world class rowers compete in a 3 mile long course.  If you ever wanted to see a land of giants, this event is certain to impress. Thousands of tall men and women, in the top 5% of the US population, come to compete and watch. Plus it’s a great place to meet up with college alumni and old rowing friends.




I rowed on the University of Washington’s Women’s crew team in 1995 and was very fortunate to meet with Mike Callahan, Head Coach for the University of Washington’s Men’s crew team, and learned about transportation and the financial challenges that it takes to get the team and their boats across the cross country.  This got me about how we can help University of Washington and other crew teams pay for these extraordinary experiences.


Over 50% of every men’s crew roster on average is over 6 foot 3 inches which is in the tall slender demographic TEAL Apparel supports. I’d love to support Tall people and rowers and if TEAL Apparel can help your rowing program fundraise through private sales please do not hesitate to contact me. I want every rowing program to have the ability to send their team to the Head of the Charles each year.

Found: Long Scarves

October 24th, 2013

Winter is fast approaching which means it is time to break out the cold weather gear.  A must have accessory is the scarf to protect your neck from the cold temperatures. Tall men with long necks are challenged by short scarves. The average scarf length is 60 inches or 5 feet which is too short to wrap twice around the neck and tie. Based on ties that my husband has tried on, I recommend that you find a scarf that is at least 72 inches or 6 feet long. Here’s the thing: long scarves come in two options, either very poor quality (read: cheap itchy wool) or overpriced, top of the line quality cashmere. There is nothing in between.  I became aware of this issue when I shopped for a scarf for our Fall Photo Shoot and researched at long length (pun intended) to find scarves that are best in class and of great value.  See my Top Picks below.


Warm Regards,

Tall Adventures: Apple Picking with the Lalliers

October 17th, 2013

One of the best Fall activities is to go to a farm and pick apples. My family likes to try different farms so each experience is new and fresh. Each farm has its own charm and set of amusements for the kids including: hayrides, corn mazes, jumpy houses, pony rides and petting zoos.  The fruit picking is the main event and always sparks the kids gathering and picking skills while we fill our bellies with warm apple cider and crunchy, pillow-y cider donuts. This outing never disappoints and it is great family bonding time.

Here is a standard PICK YOUR OWN Fruit Calendar for most farms in the USA. This will help you strategize your next trip to the farm.
