I won a gym membership this summer, while volunteering at a charity event, so I have been going about 2-3 times per week, mostly just getting on the treadmill, but at least once a week, I head across the lobby to the weight room and brave all the 20-something young men who apparently have no jobs and yet somehow have money to spend on gym memberships.
