I went to a university with a brand new, state of the art gymnasium. I think it was essentially free to the students and you could literally get lost inside it. I spent probably 15 minutes in that building the entire time I was there.
After college I didn’t make any effort to join a gym although for a while I was living on Nob Hill in San Francisco, working on Market Street, and walking to and from work every day. I’m not sure what the elevation change was exactly, but that was probably close to the best shape I’ve ever been in.
Tabitha, unlike myself, needs to go to the gym. She can’t not. When I started going with her about a year or so ago, I found it pretty brutal. But of course its grown on me considerably and these days I almost, almost, look forward to going.
