Leadership * Legendary * Legacy

Coach K 1K

Coach K: the first Men’s Division I coach to reach 1K victories!

That is exactly what Coach K exudes, and today, he took it to the highest level ~ as he exceeded 999 wins when his Duke Blue Devils excelled at Madison Square Garden and thundered past the St. John’s Red Storms.

Now he has joined the ranks of my fave female coach, Pat Summitt!

Congrats to my hero who made history on this Game Day!

When I asked my former office next door neighbor at that same school what got her through her terminal degree, she told out me:

… which also helped her with her first 5K race, which we randomly ran together!
