A couple of years ago I saw a video of Wim Hof, The Iceman, running a half marathon in Lapland, Finland at -26 degrees Celcius barefoot, just wearing shorts and a small cap. I saw also many other videos of his feats with extreme cold water. I was very impressed by his ability to use his mind to withstand such cold temperatures. Several months ago I decided to contact him, perhaps I would be able to learn something from him. I found his website and I wrote him an e-mail asking if he had any training program. Soon after he replied to me and told me that the 1st of May 2010 he will give a one week workshop in a farm in Poland. I immediately decided to join this workshop, although I didn't know anything about it, but in the e-mail he sounded like a really nice guy, so why not give it a try, right?
