Man does push-ups from Mill Valley to Golden Gate

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

You've heard of people biking across country, but how about doing push-ups across the county?

A Mill Valley man has done just that. It took 62-year old Joel Kirsch six weeks to push-up and jump his way from Novato to the Golden Gate Bridge -- a 35 mile journey.

Kirsch is about to launch a tuition-free private school and he did this to highlight the connect physical activity and academic performance.

He says the downhills are most challening because there's more weight on your hands.
