#13: Do the polar bear plunge – CHECK!

I'm in the bottom right frame, obscured by a sizeable splash of frozen pond water.

I was mildly hungover this morning when I saw the frozen pond for the first time and thought, this is literally the worst idea I’ve ever had.

My BF reminded me that there was no turning back: I’d already raised money to jump for charity and we were standing at the shore, swimming trunks on, Irish coffees in hand.

Hitting the water felt like a full-body slap.

I lurched out of the pond in a state of frigid, euphoric shock. I felt alive. It felt good.

Happy New Year friends.
