Think the scariest thing about swimming in the Potomac River is the pollution? Think again. An 8-foot shark was caught in the Potomac River on Monday (way out in St. Mary’s County MD– but it’s all the same water, people!), and the fisherman who caught it has the pictures to prove it.
As someone who will be jumping into the Potomac River in a little over a week for the Nation’s Triathlon, I think this is the best motivation imaginable to cut minutes off my swim time.
