A few weeks ago we went to Maine for a long weekend to visit relatives. I have a hard time, like most people, carving out time to workout. However, I’ve found that when a task is made a priority – it almost always gets completed. Hey, if these President’s can find time to go for a run while leading the free world, I certainly can squeeze in a 20 minute job during my hectic career as a working-mom.
Whether or not you agree with their political views, you have to admit these were busy, busy dudes.
Teddy Roosevelt: Wrestled, boxed, fenced, rock-climbed, engaged in jujitsu, played tennis, rode horseback and hiked.
Barack Obama: Plays basketball and runs.
George W. Bush: Avid runner and mountain-biker.
Bill Clinton: Loves jogging and golf. (This is a pretty neat picture, no?)
Ronald Reagan: Football, swimming and horseback riding.
As Thomas Jefferson said, “Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading.”
