Well I did it! I completed number 96 on my 100 Things to do before I Die list. I participated in a polar bear plunge.
Here is the video to prove it:
I have to say that overall it was not that bad. I really psyched myself out beforehand. I was reading about all the terrible things that could happen if you shock your system by jumping into freezing water. But as the day went on almost everyone that participated dove underwater and they were fine.
So I ALMOST went completely under. I chickened out at the last second. I would like to do it again next year and hopefully get some more people to do it with me and have another great time.
