superman

Heard this today at church from a woman whose daughter lives with a family who knows the Hinckleys. (So it's a little second hand.) President Hinckley's family members take turns taking meals to him since his wife passed away. His daughter-in-law said that President Hinckley gets home from his office late, sometimes past 7 pm. He whips off his dress shirt and tie and pulls on a t-shirt. Leaving his dress pants on, he puts on tennis shoes, grabs some weights, and hits the treadmill. He's ninety-seven years old.

What's your excuse?

i have to do all that in the mornings while the husband is at work and the kids at school because i'm needed at home in the evening to make them dinner. that's my excuse. :)

our prophet is pretty awesome though.

That makes me think a rather ireverant thought..."And he marvels at the fact that he is still alive?" I guess lots of people would live to be in their 90's if they broke a sweat like that every day.

My excuse is the same as Athena's. :D

I thought it was inspiring for exercise but also anything else I'm "too tired" to do.
