John and Rowen ran their first race together on this chilly January morning!
It’s called the frigid 5K and polar plunge￼. https://runtasticevents.com/races/frigid-5k-faq/.
This is the second year that John has run this race AND taken the plunge into a hole cut into an ice covered lake!
This year the young blood, Rowen, took the race and got first in his age group!!!
John was less than a minute behind and he took second in his age group!!!
So much pride going on in this house 😊
Elated and tired they went to the plunge site.
John jumped first.
And then they All had to wait for 30 minutes. They had let him jump before the ambulance arrived. Oops, but no harm no foul and he was willing to do it again. The line stacked up, longer and longer and the runners cooled their heels and toes and fingers while they waited.
But 32 minutes later a cheer went up as the ambulance came and the jumps were set to officially start.
John was 3rd in line this (2nd) time and Rowen was 4th.
