The Polar Bear Plunge

I survived! I jumped into a freezing river (in negative degree weather – true story) and I survived!

First and foremost, I want to thank the lovely Tracy for inviting me to join her in this fun madness!

And now this plunge can best be summed up with this video: (also, important note: here is your formal introduction to BF! He speaks in this video!)

It was cold, and my crocs fell off, so I had to run barefoot through the snow.

Honestly, after the plunge, the only thing that remained frozen were my toes. I thought it would be a good idea (ha) to change into skinny jeans afterward. The issue? My toes were so frozen, I could hardly fit them through the ankles of the jeans! 😛

You are INSANE!!! I'm freezing just WATCHING that video! On another note, I'm so jealous of all the snow (even though I know it's a pain in real life).
