Icy water up to my mid-section, cold sand clinging to my feet, goose pimples covering my arms, teeth chattering in the frigid air. That’s a short description of my physical condition during today’s Polar Plunge. And here’s the thing: by comparison, it was the best feeling I’ve had this whole miserable, depressing week.
Big(ly) thanks to everyone who sponsored me or sponsored other members of our team. The event raised about $100,000 for the Special Olympics, which is a great cause.
I’ll take an hour-long hot shower tonight.
