Happy President’s Day! In honor of our nation’s leaders, here’s a photo play by play of President Barack Obama attempting hurdles at Hayward Field, home to the University of Oregon’s track and field team. If the President can overcome a hurdle in his suit, surely we can  motivate ourselves to go for a run this holiday morning in our running shorts. At least we’ll be wearing more suitable shoes than the president.
