East Chop dip for O.B. trotters


Just after completing the Oak Bluffs Turkey Trot road race on Thanksgiving, five sweaty competitors decided to waste no time in cooling down: they jumped into Nantucket Sound at East Chop beach. Trying to warm up as fast as they cooled down, the masochists posed quickly after the dip, before sprinting to their warm cars and speeding home to a steaming shower. Left to right, Roger Armstrong, Gail Barmakian, Roger Wey, Betty Doherty, and Brian Kennedy.
