It was meant to be...

So I just got back from the gym. It was one of those 2 hour+ workouts I haven't had in a LONG time. It had the potential to be disastrous when my ipod died about 5 seconds into the first song. But I rolled with it. I stretched and did weights for about 40 minutes and then it was time for cardio. I struggled for a minute with what I would do. It's easy to read on the bike and while I do work up a sweat it gets pretty boring. I opted for the arc trainer knowing that I could get the book thing so I could read my book easily.

Over the past 2 weeks I have been reading and researching a lot. I am reading How to Change the World by David Bornstein which is about social entrepreneurs. I have also been researching South African Housing. I know I might have lost some of you, but I swear this stuff is really interesting. Before I got on the arc trainer I perused the magazine racks to see of there were any gossip magazines I haven't read yet, no dice. I got on and started reading my book. Then by chance I look up at the magazine rack nearest me and see the word "AFRICA." I look over the cover and immediately get off the machine and grab the magazine before someone else could. It was meant to be that while I am in the midst of researching South Africa here is a Vanity Fair from July of 2007 made randomly available to me. I don't ever take magazines from the gym or doctors offices, but I made an exception for this one. I just read the first few pages and I am SO excited to finish it. Have no fear I will at least take it to the gym or pass it along to someone who will get just as much knowledge from it as I have.
