Annual Run and Polar Bear Dip

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, Andrew and I sure did! Sorry about the lack of pictures, my camera was left at the Bybee's so Christmas posts may be slow coming. The following pictures are courtesy of Emily.

Last year Andrew and I did the Lake Padden Resolution Run and Polar Bear Dip as part of my attempt at doing one new thing everyday for year. An attempt that failed miserably by the way. All of my friends thought that running 2.5 miles on New Year's Day and then jumping in the lake sounded so fun that they wanted to do it with us this year.

After the race. We are very wet.
Trying to stay warm while we wait for the Polar Bear Dip.
Getting nervous!
After the dip! Nice and refreshed and ready to start the new year!

P.S. There is a small chance that video of this event may be coming!

You guys are crazy! Snow on the ground and jumping into water...what are you think?!?!? You crazy, crazy people. At least you had fun. I just hope you don't get sick. :)
