Scooby is still waiting on President Barack Obama’s front lawn to meet with the president, I couldnt find a shirt to wear but I was hoping he would meet with me anyway. I was really hoping to be able to share my ideas on how we could turn childhood obesity around, save on healthcare by promoting fitness and wellness in the schools, and save lives by clamping down on the out-of-control supplement industry.
While waiting all day for the president, I was really inspired by how fitness minded the people who work in the Capitol area are! At all times of the day there are joggers, ultimate frisbee players, soccer games, and bicyclists everywhere! Even when its 90+ degrees and humid, folks are out exercising. This really did my heart good to see that at least in the part of Washington DC where the law makers are, fitness seems to be a very visible past-time. Of course in start juxtaposition to the fit locals running their 5 minute miles are the tourists who are so obese that you are afraid they will have a heart attack by the time they go up the 43 steps to the Lincoln Memorial.
