The Duluth Polar Bear Plunge is approaching fast, February 16th and on a blustery day like today it makes me really start to think about jumping in the lake, with fingers crossed that it is at least above zero that day.

The great thing about this event is the enthusiasm that everyone has the day of the plunge. Even though these plunges are held all over the State of Minnesota, many people travel to Duluth to get some serious bragging rights about jumping into Lake Superior in February.

Yes the water is freezing cold, but for me the hardest part is trying to get out of the water because you are so cold, your legs won't move fast enough, at least in my case. :o I love the pre-plunge party as you can feel the excitement and maybe a few nerves, then afterwards the high fives and congratulations!
