[That Gym] Has Officially Been Removed From my Blog

Just got a call from gym owner who said that not only did the dent guy from this morning tell him how upset I was, but also a couple came into the gym tonight to sign up for a membership with a printed out copy of my blog and wanted to know if it was true before they signed up for membership. We both had a good laugh about it and I told him that it proved the point i was trying to make to personal trainer guy...that it is possible for one person to affect your business. He also said he has alot of respect for me as a marathon runner (smiles) and that he would be the first person to say that someone who is determined enough to run a marathon is determined enough to ruin a business. I couldn't have put it better myself.

In all honesty, the owner of that gym is a pretty stand-up guy. He has repeatedly offered me a remedy (in the form of gym membership and/or personal training) but at the same time says he completely understands that I don't really want to step foot in there again. It would just be too uncomfortable for me. He also said that they were having a conference call with the President of the personal training tonight...guess who might be in trouble????

All in all, if you do live in Macon and are considering this gym, it is really really nice. A movie room upstairs, lots of classes, and an owner who takes pride in what he does. Unfortunately, I can't say that much for the personal training department but that shouldn't stop someone from wanting to belong to a nice, new, clean gym.

Wow -- remind me not to mess with you! But then, I knew that already!

Success! Nothing like a strong blog to show you mean business. This should be a lesson to anyone thinking about messing with a woman with a world wide audience!

I realize that you’re frustrated that you can't run for the time being; but, have you thought about water running? (yes I realize that you may have to find another health club to do this). It may look dumb, but it will keep your legs in shape and cause no trauma to your foot. You’ll be back in top form quicker once you can start bearing weight on the foot. It will also help with the transition from injured runner to kick-ass runner since no one is going to advise that you go out for a 10 mile jaunt the first day after you get clear to walk again.
