Comments heart Member October 2013 Does anyone know if the Potomac is open for recreational swimming? I'll be in DC this weekend for business and it would be lovely to get an OW swim in. IronMike Bishkek, KyrgyzstanCharter Member October 2013 @heart, pm me. I'll give you locations/pointers based on where your hotel is. http://marathonswimmers.org/blogs/ironmike heart Member October 2013 Thanks, Mike! JBirrrd Member October 2013 @heart If you prefer to swim w/ others, ABC swims daily in the Annapolis area, not too far away from DC. I'm out of town this weekend, but if interested, I can put you in touch w/ the right people there. Enjoy your visit. :-) heart Member October 2013 @JBirrrd, I wish I could - I'm on company time (and dime) and with obscenely little time to myself, let alone means to get out of town! I've found a pool nearby and I'll satisfy myself with that. JonML Member October 2013 There is that big pool down on the mall. I don't think anyone would mind. JBirrrd Member October 2013 With the government shutdown over, looks like this pool is open for business. Last one in is a rotten egg. :-) Sign In or Register to comment.
