Rep. Anderson is on the move

The first annual “Legislators on the Move” competition winners were announced today, and Priest Lake Rep. Eric Anderson finished in 5th place by logging 510, 981 steps, or roughly 255 miles. Nearly a third of the Legislature (28 lawmakers) signed up for the contest, which was sponsored by Regence BlueShield of Idaho. They all were given pedometers that tracked how many steps they took over the past six weeks.

Rep. Darrel Bolz, R-Caldwell, grabbed first place and gets $5,000 from the health insurance company to give to a school of his choice for fitness-related causes. The marathon runner amassed 746,686 steps. Rep. Margaret Henbest, D-Boise, took second and Rep. Mark Snodgrass, R-Meridian, finished in third place.

Asked what the secret to his success was, Anderson simply said, “Golf.” He gets $250 to hand out to any school he chooses.
