Pretty cool. Bush was active as hell I know that. Was a due hard mountain biker and runner. When I was stationed at the presidential helo squadron, I got to go Mountain biking with him in Crawford, TX and at Camp David a few times. Guy is a machine on a bike. He had secret service agents that couldn't keep up with him on a ride. Rule was, if you couldn't keep up, you got dropped from the ride. But when the agents couldn't keep up, man he would harass them pretty good. Running with him straight hurt. Back a few years ago, I ran my 3 mile run in the 18:00-19:00 range, and Bush was faster than that. It was straight pain running with him.
