There is a gentleman at Bally’s who has the most annoying treadmill routine.  He runs for about a minute, jumps off, towels his head, looks around, then jumps back on and keeps going.  I’ve witnessed his weird antics many times before, and he just pisses me off everytime. 

I’m on the treadmill, doing my thing, feeling a good momentum from my steady pace.  Then this clown gets on the treadmill next to me, which he always gets on the treadmill next to me, and starts ruining my flow.  Today, I decided to let the joke be on him and count the number of times he jumped off and then blog about how rididuclous he is.  In the last 15 minutes of my run, he stopped to towel off his head 11 times.  Either run hard for 10 minutes and call it a workout, or just walk and not run.  He braces himself on the treadmill while he is running so it’s not like he’s even getting that great of a workout.  I came really close to yelling at him this morning, but I decided to just look at him everytime he stopped running and give him a look.  Which, of course, didn’t seem to phase him.

This morning’s episode reminded me of the “Woo Woo” YouTube video we used to watch at Nortel.  I’ve posted it here for your enjoyment.  It’s only for decoration, man, it’s only for decoration (…yeah I got ’em on my car)…

They think it’s a fad and it’s going away.  It’s not a fad, it’s not going away.  And it is driving me nuts.  I run on the treadmill… I can’t concentrate.
