Doing their Patriotic duty

Well, overnight it was halftime…for 2016. And now we get to come out of the locker room fresh and attack the second half of the year!

Don’t forget how far you’ve gotten these first six months. You may be closer to your goal than you think!

If you’d like to be moved about someone you may have heard of but not known much about, read the LA Times’ Bill Plaschke’s great article about Tennessee Lady Vols coaching legend, Pat Summitt, who passed away Tuesday.
