A Special Edition: February 20th Is Only Five Weeks Away

In my small town, we support a YMCA.  Last year one of the janitors fed me a gym secret.

I’m going to share . . . again.

 * * *

We’ve all done it, made a resolution.

January 1st, we put our resolution into action. Feeling the enthusiasm, joy, trepidation of a kindergartner on the first day of school.

January 22nd hits. Some of us fell off the resolution joy ride, while others continue strong.

The staff at your local gym are marking off the days on their calendar. That special day when the last of the irresolute “resolutioners” fall off the resolution joy ride.

It’s the same day every year.

There are only 5 weeks left until that special day when the gym staff can take a coffee break. And the janitors no longer pull double duty cleaning the locker rooms.

February 19th.

Let’s mess with their heads. Let’s make it a strong finish. Let’s all show up on the 20th!

To finish is to win.

TO FINISH IS TO WIN. (Yes, that’s me at the finish line.)

For those of you who make it to February 20th, how about a little Queen with “We Are The Champions.” Freddie Mercury’s choice of outfit. . . well, it was the transition from the seventies to the eighties.

Until next week.



About Fannie Cranium

Writing since she could first hold a pen, Tracy Perkins formed her alter ego, "Fannie Cranium" at the suggestion of her husband. Tracy understands smiling makes people wonder what she’s been up to.

  1. That is amusing.. I’ve certainly noticed a few new faces in the gym. Roll on 19 Feb and I get the treadmill to myself again.


  2. February?! I guess you don’t hang out in the weight room, those people don’t make it two weeks.
