Polar Bear Plunge…sort of.

Both Rob and I had our respective workouts to finish in the morning before heading up to the Polar Bear Plunge.

There used to be a annual polar bear swim right here in the beautiful and cough clean Potomac river, but from what I can tell, that seemed to have vanished.

Garmin Winter Training–Cycling Garmin Winter Training - Running Now that we’ve seen ‘Winter Training’ in cycling and running, I’m waiting for the ‘Swimming – Polar Bear Plunge Edition’ one.

What I wear: Cold weather running

Then we have the Polar Bear Plunge, which, as you can see – starts off as a run…but ended up turning into a swim.
