Vancouver New Years Day Run - Surprise, Guys!

Heads-up if you are a man who plans to go for a run and a swim tomorrow and would like a warm shower and a place to change afterwards...

I've got some bad news:  The men's change room/shower at Brocton Oval was vandalized and is closed.  The entire men's side of the facility is still boarded-up.  

I spoke to both the park ranger and to a representative of the City of Vancouver parks.  There are some portable toilets, but no alternative mens change or shower facilities.  If you're a guy, you might want to think twice about trying to beat Sammy's 22-minute swim record this year!

If you're a woman, there are no excuses for not trying to break the swim record as your side of the change facilities is tickety-boo.  (Change room open.  Showers open, but require electronic key, which I have for you.)
