You can either build the world or yourself

A few days ago, I was running on a treadmill, listening to a podcast in my AirPods, sweating and puffing my way to 10Km. I looked around and saw two people — a man and a woman — whom I see every time I go to the gym. You know the type. They are there when you get in, they are still there when you get out. Everyone says “hi” to them. They seem to know everyone; everyone seems to know them. Everytime you see them, they’re either chatting away with someone, or killing it at the gym: on a treadmill, with weights, boxing, CrossFit, you name it.
