Monday Motivation

A little snow

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.”
