This weekend, I will have the pleasure of participating in the Utah Endurance Event's Polar Bear Run!! (www.utahendurancevents.com)
I am excited to do this race. I am sure it'll be fun!
This event will consist of running outside in short, half mile sprints outside, up to a 5K distance. It will take 6 laps to get 3.1 miles, but its worth it! I will endure the UTAH weather (about 30F with possible snow) as long as I can and compete against other brave runners.
The CRAZIEST thing about this run is the wardrobe requirements. They will only allow a tee shirt and shorts at the most and swimwear at the very least. How CRAZY is that? But, running shoes and shocks will be allowed.
I have never done a race like this in the middle of winter. I guess, late winter. I wonder how intense it is going to be. I wonder how many people are going to be up for this challenge. If there aren't many, it increases my chance of winning one of the awards and more of the prizes!!
I hope that some of my Spark Friends will decide to join me on this one! I would love to get out there with some of my buddies and test skills!
This is worth a TRY!!
