I did the Polar Bear Plunge on one of the coldest days we’ve had in Seattle. We had clear sky’s and the sun joined the party. My friends and I were in the water long enough to dip and dash. We giggled, shivered and wrapped ourselves in towels elated that we did it. I looked over my shoulder to see this man in a zen state meditating in the 43 degree Puget Sound. I was astounded along with wondering how he was avoiding hypothermia. I applaud his mental strength.
