Polar Plunge and a 14 Miler

Ran by North Avenue Beach today and spotted a massive crowd.  From afar, I noticed a few people in the lake, so I assumed it was the annual Polar Plunge.  I was correct.  It was about 33 degrees outside.  About 20 degrees with the strong wind.  I got a few pictures:

Beer Pong


Wizard of Oz characters

A Frau and Herr

Video of Vikings and Elvis?

Ran 14 miles total.  Last 5k: 24:04

Evening Run: 4.25 Miles.  18.25 total for the day.


  1. Fun! They look like they are having a good time. I would enjoy seeing something like that on my long run :)

    1. I'm always seeing something interesting on my long runs. The city is a wacky place sometimes. Yes, everyone was having a good time. I believe that a wee bit of alcohol may have had a little to do with it!
