Count off And Name- o-rama:
In honor of Presidents’ Day, I read one of my favorite quotes from Abraham Lincoln which speaks to Leadership:
“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”
I grossly underestimated how much harder working out in these conditions would be. Being bundled up in many layers really restricted my range of motion and made catching my breath that much harder. But it also made the push that much harder and led to a greater sense of accomplishment.
