Travel Pool Report #3
Dec. 24, 2013
After spending more than an hour at the gym, President Obama was back in the motorcade, which departed the base at 9:09 a.m.
The pool quickly rejoined the motorcade, which is traveling back in the direction of the president’s vacation home.
While holding at McDonald’s, your pool encountered a group from Toronto who had just seen the president at the gym. They reported that Obama was working out with free weights and shooting a few baskets. The president had stopped to sign an autograph for the 10-year-old girl in the group. At McDonald’s, she showed off her journal, where Obama had written “To Kyrstin –Dream big dreams!” and signed his name. Kyrstin Lavelle said Obama was “really nice.”
Kyrstin said she gave Obama flowers. The president joked that he would give them to Michelle and say that he picked them, Kyrstin said.
