The guy in the hotel gym wants to be a boxer. Running on the treadmill, he flicks a flurry of jabs and hooks. Then he turns the speed up all the way and sprints, sprints, sprints. His booming strides terrify the other guests. That is, until he trips and falls and the runaway belt slams him into the wall a foot behind the machine, pinning him in the narrow walking space. He absorbs a massive beating. A woman hops off her stairmaster to help. Here’s this guy trying to be a boxer and he loses his first fight to a treadmill.
Ooh, what a story! Awesome!

How very painful. One of the things they always warn you against when you start training in a gym.
And that is why I don’t go to the gym 🙂 Great story! I loved the way you tied in about being a boxer, and loosing his first fight. Well thought out.
Thanks for the smile Dan.
Really good story.
