Will Swim for Food: Am I Crazy?

Earlier in the Fall, I did a crazy thing.

I signed up for Will Swim for Food. This annual event raises money for local food banks.

The idea is that we swim around the Santa Clara Wharf in the dead of winter in water with a temp of anywhere from 47 to 57 ° F and then drink and eat and be merry afterwards. It's a bit like a polar bear dip but we swim a mile and we can wear wet suits. Also, if anyone donates $150 or more, you get a decoy duck to tow around in their honor. They can decorate the duck anyway they want.

I have managed to earn one decoy duck!
