My new favorite athlete

I have to admit that I wrote and even published a whole other (whiny) post.  And then I clicked a link and saw this video and had a complete attitude adjustment.  Seriously – THIS IS WHAT LOVING WHAT YOU DO LOOKS LIKE!!!!

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world if we all danced with joy before going into a big meeting or starting a new project?  And if we were so happy and proud of ourselves at the end of it that we grinned, waved at our fans, and hugged our competitors?  Not to mention that her joy and attitude clearly contribute to a focused and effective performance.

This is a vision of the world that I can get behind!  Check out my new favorite athlete, Michelle Jenneke!

This is her pre-dance routine as she prepped to run hurdles at the World Junior Championships last weekend. (And yes, the awful music was added after. 🙂 )
