Every year at New Years the gym is packed with people resolving to get in shape, lose weight, or do their first athletic event. I am all for new beginnings and making changes, but let me encourage you: don’t just do those things. Don’t only strive for a weight change or a temporary achievement – become an athlete. Find a sport – no, find ALL the sports! – that you love and embrace them with all your awkward, gangly, wildly embarrassing passion and abandonment of self-preservation. Truly, reader, don’t just go to the gym, I IMPLORE you. This year, seek your inner athlete. You will have a better chance of surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.
