YES WE CAN!
I am so proud of my swing State of Colorado! And so thankful for Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio - and everyone who voted everywhere! It's been 8 gut-wrenching years.
Here's to an optimistic and exciting future, and to healing the division in this country and our place in the world view. I will never forget this moment. I think of my mother who would be crying tears of joy that we have elected an African-American as president of the United States of America.
Man....when you read that, it's even more powerful. Especially when you read this article by Eugene Robinson in the Washington Post.
...now back to our regularly scheduled programming. Tomorrow, you'll learn how to overcome instructor burnout and apathy (something we've all experienced).
Get fit everyone!
With optimism and hope,
PS. If you're interested, you can follow the discussion of a black presidency and growing up with racism and tolerance on this thread on Innercycling. Yes, we do have an amazing community on some of these indoor cycling forums!
