Gov. Mike Huckabee is still milking gallons out of the national media on his weight loss/jogging routine. The latest issue of Sports Illustrated includes a friendly Q&A with the guv over his training for the coming NYC Marathon. Sample:
SI: What do you think about when you run?
Huckabee: Some days I use it as an opportunity just to pray and mediate. Other days I'll listen to music and completely escape everything and just pound the pavement to the Rolling Stones. Other days I'll use it to think about concepts and ideas that I want to present in speeches and polices. That's one of the things I have found most invigorating about running. It forces me to put a lot of different juices through my head that otherwise I would not work into the day.
