Although exercise is not our forte, I think that it’s wonderful for me, so I do it as often as I can. I started running in college, plus I haven’t seemed to be able to get out of it since then. It’s really because some of our best friends are runners. My best friend, Abby, runs about many miles a day on top of her other workouts. I’m not quite as eccentric as Abby is, but I do our best to run about more than two miles per day. I’m not particularly sure how Abby ever talked myself and others into it, however she somehow convinced myself and others to take a trip to South America to run this super marathon thing with her. I couldn’t know it when the word “sure” came out of our mouth in response to her asking myself and others to make the trip with her. Before the people I was with and I knew it, the people I was with and I were off to South America to run a marathon. Surprisingly, the marathon itself wasn’t too bad. The people I was with and I both made it through pretty easily. It was, however, at the gym the few mornings after the marathon that particularly got me. My appreciation for A/C grew importantly during those mornings. For some reason, they were totally against running A/Cs at the gym the people I was with and I attended, plus it was literally one of the worst experiences of our life. Working out is hard enough on its own without adding a ninety-more than four degree room to it. By the time the people I was with and I got back to the U.S. I was so happy to workout in an air conditioned room that I went straight to the gym right after I left the airport.
