Mr. & Mrs. Ironman

We are very dedicated to the gym. No, seriously, we are.

Every morning, Ben drags me out of bed and we make our way to the local gym for an intense 45 minutes -to- hour work out. Every single day. Oh, did I mention we get out of bed at 6:30am? Oooohhhh...yes. That time of day DOES exist. Sadly.

It may seem like we are regular stalkers, but there is one couple at the gym that we see every single day. We've never been formally introduced, so we call them Mr. & Mrs. Ironman. Appropriate nicknames because they are participating in the IRONMAN competition (we know this because Ben eavesdrops).

Anyway. Back to Mr. & Mrs. Ironman. They are absolute BEASTS at the gym. For instance, Mrs. Ironman runs on the treadmill EVERY SINGLE DAY. Which is admirable enough, except when you note that she ALSO reads a magazine WHILE she runs. And I thought I was a multi-tasker. I'm telling you, I've got nothing on her. To be honest, I try to avoid being on the treadmill beside her. I mean, I can handle an incline of 6 and a speed of 4.0 while watching Good Morning America or listening to Country Music videos, but I can NOT read, speedwalk and watch GMA at the same time!

So, while Mrs. Ironman trains for the Ironman competition, I have decided to compete against her. Yes, all I want to do is achieve "Mrs. Ironman" status. I think the best way to accomplish this is to get Real Simple magazine on iPod. That way I can beat her at her own game! :)
