Congratulations to the winners of the Treadmills Suck contest. Since I am not sure where this blog rates as the center of your existence, I will take a moment to remind everyone that the objective of the contest was to locate a gym with soft serve ice cream. There were two participants, so we have roughly two winners. Even though I still do not have a gym where I can find soft serve… I am a good sport and a person of my word, so here are the results.
Second Prize - Gym at a College
Tova said... The gym at my college had a "smoothie" bar with "smoothies" made of ice cream. I think that is the closest you will get to soft serve. :(
While I can accept the fact that buying a smoothie from some aerobics addict working on her anthropology degree is likely be my best shot at getting anything near ice cream at a gym, you neglected to tell me the name of your college, or even the location of the gym. I tried to narrow it down… but you fail. You get the t-shirt anyway, but you must wear it in an attitude of defeat.
First Prize - Chico Sports Club:
who said... Chico Sports Club used to sell frozen yogurt at the fitness center across the street from Chico Community Hospital's rehabilitation center off of Cohasset Road.
Chico Sports Club selling frozen yogurt seventeen years ago doesn’t really solve my soft serve problem, but you still get credit for the effort. At least you gave me a location more specific than ‘college gym.’
I am a little disappointed that my quest for soft serve ice cream served at a gym did not lead to better results. However, I do have to admit that the presence of soft serve still might not be enough to entice me to go to the gym. As I write this, I am imagining the gym experience. I am part of a long row of people, all of us attached to strange equipment, moving along miserably with our eyes glued to the local news. It is starting to freak me out.
It just came to my attention that the title of original post was "Treadmills are Stupid," but I am keeping the alternate name because I like it better. Anyway, thanks for playing!
