November 8th is ELECTION DAY in the USA!

Today is a monumental day in the United States of America. We finally were able to vote for our next president...The President of the United States of America. What an honor to cast your vote as citizen of your country to choose the next leader. I am not in the USA right now, so I had to vote via absentee ballot.

Marathon Lessons: Ready, Set, Focus!

I am a first time marathon runner...and of all the marathons in the world that I could have chosen as my first...I chose the NYC ING Marathon. So in just over 66 days, I will put my mind, body and soul to the test as I set out to run 26.2 miles throughout the 5 boroughs on New York City.

For the next 65 days, I will take to my blog to capture the lessons that I am learning (and earning) along my journey. Specifically, I will relate my lessons to leadership development, goal setting, determination, strategic planning, success and failure.
