It all started as Mitch Wertlieb, David Warren, and I listened this morning to NPR's story on First Lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign. It's day two of VPR's membership drive and the story inspired us to pump ourselves up to meet the challenge goal of 200 pledges by 9 a.m. So we began doing exercises in between breaks.
Before I could stop him, Mitch was telling listeners that if VPR received the 114 more pledges needed to meet the goal, that we would do a push-up for every one of those pledges.
We are people of our word, so....here's the proof. Thank you for supporting VPR! We'll let you know tomorrow whether or not our arms thank you, too!
