Clinton would also frequently kick off the day with a long early-morning jog, sometimes to McDonald’s.

Clinton was known for his lack of punctuality. He was apparently fairly unpredictable and quite a night owl, but still had a lot of structure to most of his days in the White House. He’d work long days and sleep about five hours a night.
