In my small town we support a YMCA. Three years ago 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 four days 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.
Let’s mess with their heads. Let’s make it a strong finish. Let’s all show up on the 20th!
For those of you who make it to February 20th, how about the Chariots of Fire Theme by Vangelis.
Until next week.
