Spoke yesterday to 85 U.S. MARINE CORP GENERALS AND THEIR SPOUSES at Quantico…about YNY, THINNER and fitness, if you please! Talk about presumption. Yowie! Marine Corp Generals are, of course, the fittest, toughest and some of the ablest men (and 3 women) in the country. I was more nervous than I’ve ever been in my life. And, miraculously, they and their spouses could not have been a better audience. Warm, interested, appreciative. Makes sense in a way: if anyone understands fitness – warrior fitness in their case – it is the people who head the Marine Corp. Wonderful event. I spent some time with them and I cannot convey how awed I was by their intensity, commitment and raw ability. These people CARE. Make no mistake: Marine Corp generals are different from you and me. But they could not have been more generous… or laughed more. Turned from being super scary to being great fun. And the Commandant’s wife, Bonnie Amos, is a four star treat in her own right. The country gets a two-fer with those two, believe me.
