... comes from Hillary Clinton. Although he is already a few years old in the original, her husband and ex-US President Bill Clinton chatted him out at an event on health topics in the "Time" magazine in New York. Thanks to his wife, he had become a runner while studying law, said the 73-year-old today.
Hillary Clinton had him then very directly to more movement: "'You know, I think you should start running.' Before I had not done that," Bill Clinton said about the advice of his two years younger wife. He took the hint to heart and ran every week up to 40 kilometers - but never more than about 14 kilometers at a time. "I was a passionate runner," Clinton said.
In spite of this hobby, which is exemplary for health, there are also things that Clinton prefers to refrain now and then: "I would eat much less fried food," he said. Well, there are supposed to be other US presidents who get weak at fast food.
