12 Pull-ups & Counting

A bunch of us were working late at the campaign office tonight when the front door slammed open and shut and Jerry thundered inside wearing track pants and a t-shirt.

He was stopping by after an evening run around Lake Merritt and, full of post-exercise energy, asked our campaign manager, Steve, for a pull-up contest. The two men headed over to the bar hanging in the hallway outside the kitchen.

I challenge anyone who comments on Jerry's age to compete against him in a pull-up competition. You will get schooled. The man is a machine - he finished a dozen before showing any semblance of even being tired. Then, as Steve struggled (and failed) to match him, Jerry hit the floor and did fifty push-ups while we counted along out loud.

They say age is just a number. Anyone who doubts that need look no further than Jerry Brown.
