I was running beside a woman today, a rather extremely… husky, woman. She attempted to keep up to me, and when she failed she still managed to do a decent walking speed for over forty minutes. Since I go nearly every day I could tell the gym was a rather new experience for her, at least this one was, as I had not yet seen her there before. I was proud of the tenacity in her workout so when she turned toward me to remove herself from the treadmill I gave her a smile and a thumbs up. I will not make this mistake again. I have never seen such an angry face from a female stranger in my life.

Today I learned: Don’t give encouragement at the gym, apparently some people hate that.
