Editor's Note: In the last of our best of EMT 2010 stories we bid farewell to 2010 and celebrate 2011 with a polar plunge at the Boulder Res. Happy New Year from the entire EverymanTri Team. May 2011 bring you a personal best time, and of course a Kona slot!
Some people celebrate the New Year by sleeping in.
But in Boulder, Colorado about 900 crazy, brave, intrepid, foolhardy, generous and did we say crazy individuals took the annual New Year's Polar Plunge into freezing water to help raise money for the Alzheimer's Association.
The youngest was just a few years old and the oldest plunger was 82-years-old.
But they all shared one thing in common...a love of freezing cold water.
