Honestly, days off exist because you have to rest up your body, your not a robot you need to do this. At the same time, how often are you doing something that will make a difference in your community with strangers and just by your presence, your helping with that.
A new client of AGM is Meghan Duggan. She is a native of Danvers, MA and along with teammate Molly Schaus, they brought all of their teammates to Special Olympics Massachusetts. It wasn't a true day off, the team did go to strength and conditioning in the morning but when you decide to lend a hand instead of taking time to take care of yourself, it shows the character and leadership that you have when your going to wear the national colors in competition it extends well beyond that.
I applaud not only Meghan and Molly, but all of the members of the US Women's Ice Hockey Team for making a difference in their new community on their Road to Sochi, recognizing along the way that their is a message to share and that is to be a good neighbor in the grand landscape of their own Olympic journey.
Here is a link to a video that captured some of what they saw today in Saugus shot by another US WNT teammate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4p7OZuR5w8&feature=youtu.be
