Run and Dip Photo Evidence!

Ross finally uploaded some photos from the Run and Dip on New Years Day. I promised to post them, plus this is proof that I went knee deep into the freezing cold water.

Me during the run portion (trying to catch up to everyone who had left 5 min before I reached the main parking lot)

This was the scene last year (January 1st, 2009). Ross was out there breaking the ice with an ice pick after a fresh snowfall. It had snowed a lot that December and the trail around the lake was single track due to snow being just under knee deep.

This year, there was a very thin layer of ice that easily broke. You can see it behind us where the water looks different. Here is the group of us slowly making our way into the lake.

The other ladies were ready to get out right away, but we quickly posed for a photo. I debated going all the way in, but opted not to and got out as well.

A bit blurry, but Norm and Darren after they dove into the water. Norm ended up with a nice cut right across his forehead from the ice.

Time for Chili, Nanaimo Bars, Cookies, Rum Balls, Hot Chocolate and Tea (among other food items)

2010 Run and Dip completed! Bring on 2011.... maybe I will go in all the way, then again maybe not. 2009, I did not even touch the water, so 2010 was a step up. Next step waist deep? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
