After a debaucherous night out, some New Yorkers plan to sleep in for a good chunk of New Years Day. They'll roll out of bed at ten or eleven, and have brunch somewhere right down the street.
We start at 6:30 AM sharp with a workout! Then after some coffee and conversation, we make our way to Coney Island for a second workout and, finally, a group dip into the Atlantic. The polar plunge.
We're cold, tired, and probably still a bit inebriated. But it's these obstacles that make the event so fun (and Rise-y). Look out for the event on Meetup when it comes around!
If you see the infamous Katie O, ask her how the Rise polar plunge got started!
