ABOUT THIS STORY:
I wrote this profile about John Du Cane for the Star Tribune’s Variety section. As Du Cane and I were arranging the details for our first interview, he emailed me a photo of himself executing a precise pullup on a high bar he keeps in his basement office. The image alone made it clear how dedicated this 60-something business man was to his body and staying fit. And interviewing him for the profile just reinforced that first impression.
