Endorphin chaser?” Errol shook his head, looking at the floor. He almost had the aspect of a man hiding something – but this was Errol. A more normal, unassuming man you could not hope to meet. What was up with this? “No, not at all. I… I…” Errol seemed on the edge of a confession. Maybe this was the thing I had been looking for all this time – that key insight into the night sweater that I had been seeking. I leaned in closer – conspiratorily close. “What is it then, Errol? Tell me…” “Well,” he said, still not looking directly at me. “It’s, you know, quieter in here at this time. Less people about…” That was true – there were five pieces of empty workout machines on either side of us. “Ahhh,” I said, touching my nose. “No one to break into your routine, right? Killer focus, rhythm… all that jazz, right?” “No, no.” Errol seemed to be struggling with his admission – what the hell was it? “You know… I haven’t really done much of this kind of thing before. I was never really into sports as a kid, or anything like that. I only started coming here last week, after I realized I was getting dizzy and out of breath all the time.” OMG – what was wrong with Errol? Was he ill? My expression became the paragon of concern. “No, no, nothing like that! It was just from walking up the stairs – to my bedroom. I realized I had to do something… that I was so out of shape, you know? So I started coming here… to try to get in a little better shape.” I stood back, looking at him. “Yeah, but – at 1am? Isn’t that a little “deep-end” for a beginner?” Errol shook his head. “No man, it’s way better. No one is around at all at times – no one to watch you. You know, to judge you. I guess I’m a little self-conscious, you know?” “What about work?” I asked. “Are you exhausted during the day?” “No, not at all,” he replied. “We have flex-hours, you know? I can work whenever and wherever I want. So do a lot of people in here…” So that was it, then. Mankind’s answer to the frenetic pace of life. Work-life balance – the right to choose and be a master of your own destiny. Choice. Options. The right to work out in the way you want, when you want, in the manner you choose to do so. Freedom. “So… the gym is dark and full of Errols… wow…” “Er,” said Errol, concern now bouncing to his side of the court. “What?” “Nothing,” I replied, strangely and satisfyingly drained now that the epiphany was over. “Ignore me – I’m exhausted. It’s way past my bedtime…”
