An Ode to My Personal Trainer


For Steve Hernandez.

One day after the first workout:

I hate you.

You make me do things I don’t want to do.

My muscles ache.  My joints creak.  My steps are slow.

I feel ten years older.

One month after the first workout:

I feel ten years younger.

My muscles are stronger.  My joints flex.  My steps are springy.

You make me do things I don’t want to do.

I love you.
