This wasn't the first Polar Bear swim I've done, and the weather wasn't bad (41F air/39F water with a little breeze) but this year the Long Beach Polar Bears attempted to set the Guinness Record for the biggest winter swim. It seemed like a pretty good reason to get out of bed in the morning so a bunch of my friends met at one friend's beach house out there and after a few adult beverages we went for a dip...all 3500 of us or so. My buddy's GF took some pics, I'll see if I can get a hold of them tomorrow.

Thanks guys. It's not something that I plan my life around but it's a good excuse to start partying WAY before the superbowl (we cracked our first beers around 11AM on the train ride out to LI) and help raise some money for a good cause at the same time. This one event has raised a little over a $1mm just over the last three years for the Make a Wish foundation, they're estimating that this year alone would be over $400,000.

Plus, I got a cool shirt out of the deal. :thumbsup:
