Words That Move You...


It is really hard to find someone that has more "get up and go" than Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee. Did you know that she suffered from exercise induced asthma and still manged to win 3 gold medals in track and field. Joyner-Kersee still holds the world record in heptathlon, the seven event track and field challenge that includes long jump.

So if you feel you have been slacking a bit on the exercise front and focusing more on your aches and pains than your "get up go," hopefully her words will move you...







Ask any athlete: We all hurt at times. I'm asking my body to go through seven different tasks. To ask it not to ache would be too much.
