First 5K of 2013: "Run to the Plunge"

Friday, January 04, 2013

Hi all,

My first 5K race for 2013 is the "Run to the Plunge" in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on Saturday, February 2, and it is special one in that all the pledges benefit Delaware Special Olympics. The grand daddy event, the 2013 Polar Bear Plunge, is on Sunday, February 3. I've done the plunge before (2001 to 2005), but I enjoy running now, so this is a perfect way for me to do what I like AND help out a great cause (not to mention I'll stay much warmer than running into the Atlantic Ocean in my bathing suit with the water temps in the 30's!!).

Please consider sponsoring me. The link to the web site is below:

    Way to go, Patrick! Yep, I might have done a Polar Bear plunge when I was younger, but I just don't think it would be a Good Thing for a 66-year-old heart!
