    Michelle Obama helps break world record for jumping jacks

    [​IMG]

    Michelle Obama has earned her family another place in history. This time, Mrs. Obama will share the honor with more than 300,000 other participants who in October set the record for most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.

    The previous world record was just 20,000.

    If you can't love Mr. Obama, you gotta love his wife, Mrs. Obama, a true Capricorn lady covering all the bases...Isn't she lovely?


    Peace In,

    ...and absolutely beautiful too.

    Man! This reminds me of one of my first big victories when i was nine years old. I had gotten First Place and a blue ribbon for winning the jump rope contest...but then days later, I ended up on crutches and then my lungs collapsed and I ended up being hospitalized for over a month due to having double pneumonia...

    but that blue ribbon was an experience that always caused me to strive to be 'a healthy' competitor all throughout my life from then on. Now though, I need to get up from this computer and do something.

    Let's Move Cities & Towns Recognition: Nashville


    Posted by Anton J. Gunn, HHS Regional Director, Region IV-Southeast on December 08, 2011

    5,000 people. 360 teams. Five kilometers. One goal.
    As a part of the Let's Move! Cities, Towns, and Counties initiative, Nashville’s Mayor Karl Dean decided to take an active role in helping make his city healthier. He pledged to engage Tennesseans in healthier lifestyles by creating healthy and active communities in Nashville. This past spring he launched the Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor challenge. Between April and July 2011, more than 4,000 Nashville residents walked more than 105,000 miles around Nashville’s parks and greenways with Mayor Dean. More than 500 of the participants met or exceed the 100-mile goal!
    To continue the momentum, Mayor Dean hosted a 5K Walk/Run in Nashville on November 13th. More than 5,000 Nashville kids, parents, brothers, sisters, wives, and husbands participated in over 360 teams. The 5K Walk/Run was part of NashVitality, an initiative focused on creating healthy, active, and green communities in Nashville that was made possible through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. In the months leading up to the 5K, Mayor Dean invited Nashville families to participate in training groups at local YMCA’s at no cost.
    The runners and walkers were encouraged by supportive friends, family members, and fellow residents every step of the race. The crowd became a source of inspiration for the participants, including Mayor Dean, who used that positive enforcement to finish the 5K. As reported in the Tennessean, “If the crowd wasn’t there on that last uphill, I would’ve stopped and walked,” Mayor Dean said.....
