Here’s an update on a story I posted earlier. The Mill Valley fellow who is on a 3 week journey to spotlight childhood obesity by doing Burpees from Petaluma to the Golden Gate Bridge is still going strong. I got a chance to see Mr. Burpee (as I’ve nicknamed him) live as he squat-thrusted his way into Marinwood.
As I was driving through Marinwood I noticed a man drop to the pavement on his hands, kicked his legs back and did a push up before popping back up. Now I may be exaggerating, because to be truthful, there’s not much pep in his step at this point. The man is on his second week of doing this, 8 hours a day so he’s bound to be a bit tired. However, he is still at it and that’s cause for some celebrating! So I did a U-turn to drive past him and as I did, honked the horn gave him a thumbs up and got a nice smile in return.
You go Mr. Burpee! Bring it home!
Now go run!
