As part of Time's new issue featuring a profile of GOP vice-presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the magazine did a photo shoot of his workout. Ryan is a practitioner of the intense P90X workout plan, and frequents gyms in the House and on the campaign trail.
However, Ryan, has also misstated his marathon time, and there has been some confusion over his mountain-climbing claims.
Ryan may be part of a fitness trend among GOP candidates -- previous vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin appeared in Runner's World in August 2009 after she and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) lost, and is writing a book about fitness.
