Martin Luther King Holiday Workout


My pal - Kimmy S.

Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.- Babe Ruth

I saw this quote this morning randomly while reading a magazine and it really can be applied to so many things in life. Your fitness journey, your diet, your career, your health…the list can go on and on. So don’t let set backs hold you back — they are there to help us learn the right way.

Even though it’s a holiday and a day to celebrate the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr. — I headed to workout. I didn’t even look to see what the workout was, just got up, ready and then decided to take Scotty’s car. Mine was outside overnight and the layer of frost and ice did not seem like fun to scrape off — it was a cold morning!

Eight Leadership Lessons from Martin Luther King, Jr.


Eight Leadership Lessons from Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is Martin Luther King Day in the United States. On this day we celebrate the life and work of one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known. I want to take a few minutes and reflect on what is commonly referred to as his “I Have a Dream” speech.

It helped give me some inspiration to write my K12, Inc Blog post:

Teaching Kids About Great Leadership to honor MLKDay

January 17, 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday and many states are encouraging Americans to use this holiday as a way to give back.  Make sure you and your family visit the MLK Day of Service website to find get information about this effort and find projects that “strengthen communities, empower individuals, bridge barriers, and create solutions” – all actions that can help make our world a better place to live.

Here’s to helping create the next generation of Great leaders!
