We here, at Holiday Golightly, spent President's Day honoring our past leaders. Some people may honor by sharing stories, memorable moments in history, moments of silence, blah blah.
We honor by schussing down wide runs of bright, powdery snow, singing "GOD BLESS SUNDANCE" at the top of our lungs. It's a familiar tune, just with different words. We'll teach you sometime.
Are you still skeptical as to how this is related to President's Day?
We stayed at the Sundance Resort, which was founded by Robert Redford, who played Bob Woodward in "All the President's Men".
We'd like you to share in the Sundance love, so check out their...

As we get older and more committed to jobs and family, it takes some concentrated planning and scheduling to make time for our girlfriends. Scheduling active time kills two birds with one stone - you get to hang out with your girlfriends AND get some good exercise. The Danskin Triathlon is sort of an exaggerated version of what we mean when we say "exercise with your girlfriends", but still...
The Danskin is in it's 17th year, and involves a 3/8-mile swim, 20-kilometer (12.4-mile) bike ride and 5K (3.1-mile) run
In Seattle - August 16-17, and in the NY Metro area Sept. 13-14
Oh, yeah, I've heard. We're supposed to be calling them "goals" now -- not "resolutions". Whatever. "Goals" doesn't work as a verb.
Whatever you call them, there's pressure to make some changes at this time of year. And most of us (admit it!) have fitness or weight loss goals on that list. And I know we all have "make the world a better place" on there too, right? (You know - just like we wish for world peace whenever we blow out our birthday candles?)
Well, hey, we're all busy people! How do we achieve those, do our jobs, be good daughters/moms/partners/friends, AND floss our teeth?
Double up! Make your workouts HELP others, by choosing an event which donates proceeds to charity and you'll be able to cross two things off your list at once. And you be less likely to slack, because you won't just be letting yourself down - you'd be letting others down. (I know, I know ... Oprah says we shouldn't treat ourselves like that ... we're working on that one too. But having others rely on me does make me more reliable!)
And while we're at it, let's triple up! Or, heck, we're overacheivers, quadruple up ... or, well, however many you want to. I can't really count in "-ples" after four...
Use this as an opportunity to see those girlfriends you miss, and sign up as a team! You can even make a girlfriend getaway weekend out of it by scheduling it in some new city you've been meaning to discover. Let us help!
Our first recommendation is Cycle for Survival, a team cycling event that benefits lifesaving cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The event, founded by our girlfriend Jen Goodman Linn, raises funds for so-called "orphan cancers", that don't get the same attention or funding as the bigger well-known cancers do.
- Sign up to join the event live in New York at Equinox on January 25th, 2009.
- Or create a satellite team and cycle simultaneously with people around the country that day.
- Or, if you can't join the cycling, consider donating. (At least you can cross one thing off your list!)
And hey ... if you're lucky, maybe you'll end up with some of these guys in your room.
