Omaha, NE - They are serious about embracing winter. Hundreds willingly ran into Lake Cunningham. Participant Natalie Awe says, "Freezing. Really, really cold." Participant Dustin Moorehead says, "At first before going into the water, my toes were starting to get cold and then when you go into the water I think the only thing I really felt was my toes."
So it wasn't a day full of leisure at the lake. There's contemplating, a little hesitation. Awe says, "Do I really want to do this right now. " And then, the big cold rush. Participant Kim Berly Brennan say, "It's really sticky. It's muddy. It's got some sand in there so you're getting stuck and you're trying to move in the water is just pulling everything down on you."
