Confessions of a Gym Rat

Date: October 13, 2010 at 10:02 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 2

Yes, it’s true. I’m owning up to the fact that I’ve become (as my parents have said) one of “those people” at the gym. I’m buddies with the front desk guy (Hi Eryc, you make me laugh!), I know the […]

The Outlets Kicked My Butt
