New Year’s Day – Polar Bear Swim

patch1Call me crazy….many of you already have….but this is quite a fun and exciting event.  Hundreds of people running into the freezing ocean to celebrate the first day of the new year!

This winter was one of the coldest on record and the water temperature proved it. This year there were more spectators then swimmers, and once I hit the water I knew why!

Once I hit the water the exhilaration of the event came SnowMarchover me as if I were standing in front of a firing squad watching the puffs of smoke from the ends of the barrels. I knew it was going to be painful…but WOW.

This was one of the fastest swims of my race career!
