Polar Bear Plunge

This past weekend MBM and I headed to the Shore, sans the girls...they were spending the weekend with my in-laws. Every Valentine's weekend our beach town host a Polar Bear Plunge. It is quite a festive event, costumes, an Ice Queen, and for a mere $25, to benifit a local charity, you can run into the freezing cold Atlantic.
We were spectators...here are some pictures from the day...the pics of the plungers is hard to see...Sorry!




Below, is a picture of MBM trying to recruit a racer for this, share this with the athletes in your life. MBM is working so hard on this race, his first as a race director, he feels so connected to the cause!

We capped off the day with a party at our friends house. Lots of food, drinks, and friendship!

Yikes! I would worry that my heart would just stop. I'd be fine handing of the $25 and walking away!

People jump into Lake Michigan as well in the middle of Winter. Way too cold for my blood.

I would pay to watch, but you couldn't pay me enough to participate!

What a good cause MBM is heading up. Good luck to him with recruiting.
