Fitness rooms and acculturation

This is the picture I stared at for miles and miles on the fitness room treadmill over the past two days.

picgymIt’s not a bad photograph.  But it is a useless thing to hang in front of a treadmill.   It’s not distracting. Or funny.  Or inspiring.

Interestingly the mirrors in the fitness room were positioned so that they didn’t reflect anybody using the equipment.

It’s not that I want to see myself running on a hotel treadmill at 4 in the morning.  I just can’t decide whether it was careless or a very intentional decision to hang them like that.

So here is a picture of the place across from the hotel.

You can’t make out the words of the white sign in this picture, but I promise you they say “Additional Parking in Rear.”

The best part of this weekend was watching my co-instructor from Boulder, Colorado try get the grocery store worker to bag her purchases in the cloth bag she’d brought with her.  “Sure,” he said.  He double-bagged them in plastic and then lowered them into the batik bag with an indulgent smile.

We’re not in Boulder anymore, Toto…

My plane is boarding.  MdS training update tomorrow.

    I hate when baggers put the items in plastic and then into my brought from home cloth bag!
