Gelato Spot is Better Than Running

Gelato Spot

Two women step up to their treadmills and begin to input their information. Having entered their second week of running, after being the mistresses of couch potatoing, they are not looking forward to a Monday afternoon run.

Rebecca: You know we could just head over to Gelato Spot.

Vivian: Gasp! (thinks about it)

Rebecca: They have Oatmeal Raisin.

Vivian nervously begins to sweat. God knows the gelato is at least a wee bit healthier than ice cream, but how much would she have to run to work it off?

Rebecca: It has swirls of cinnamon...

Now what should have happened, looking back on the experience, is to step off the treadmill and indulge in some of Gelato Spot's delicious Oatmeal Raisin gelato. Instead, we did our workout and I must obsess about the scoop of this rich, gorgeously flavored delight that I missed out on. It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.

A word of advice, don't choose a gym located close to Gelato Spot. The temptation is always going to be too great to leave the treadmill for whatever deviously delicious flavor they have going on down the street.

Gelato Spot has an upbeat little website for you to visit but I'll give you a heads up, there's jazz flute. They are also open until midnight on the weekends which is perfect for giving your dinner some digestion time before dessert.
