Take Your Body to Work Day
"In my office, I have a picture of someone rowing on a lake. It's always right there as a reminder that rowing, when I did it full-time, was the essence of what I was about. A picture of an activity you enjoy can transport you, even bring up the physical feelings you associate with it."
— Jan Palchikoff, Olympic rower and vice president of sports programs and community affairs for Special Olympics Southern California
"There are two websites I track all day long that let me watch people surf and check out local surf breaks. It makes me feel the same way as when I'm out there surfing myself—when every cell of my being is alive and I'm completely aware, connected to the simple rhythm of the ocean."
— Mary Cappelli, high school teacher and competitive Malibu surfer in the "mature woman" category
