The Sacramento Bee has a very entertaining piece about how much Governor Jerry Brown loves his FitBit, the watch-like device that tracks physical activity and sleep patterns.
During a speech last week, the 79-year-old Gov. referenced his FitBit:
“I only have 1,332 steps. It tells you when you (should) go to bed, when you should rest, when you should get up and walk around, take 250 steps. So, I am enjoying it.”
Governor gas bag tries to walk 10,000 steps a day, which is about 5 miles. He recently urged middle-aged California government officials to get their own FitBits. He even got one for his wife for Christmas.
The man loves to walk! Hey, who wants to go for a walk?
Brown and his wife also got a pair of red bicycles. Brown wants his "road repair" package to help put more bike lanes on the road.
Jerry loves exercise just as much as he loves trains. Back in 2010 he bragged about his evening runs around Lake Merritt in Oakland. And in 2012, he challenged Governor Chris Christie to a race after Christie called him an "old retread:"
“I hereby challenge Gov. Christie to a three-mile race, a push-up contest and a chin-up contest. Whatever he wants to bet, I have no doubt of the outcome.”
Racing Chris Christie? Talk about low hanging fruit!
Just last week he bragged again about peddling on a bike for four-minute intervals of varying intensities, saying it is one of the most effective workouts.
Listen Jerry it's great that you're in such great state at 79, but you're a horrible Governor. Nobody cares about how healthy you are, this state is in shambles because of you.
So please, take your FitBit, and take 10,000 steps out of California. And then take another 10,000 steps, and just keep doing that until you're gone.
