–Only one person in my office is brushing his teeth at lunch (and even he isn’t flossing!).
–The gyms are no fuller than they were after Thanksgiving.
–The park is empty (busy on sunny days of course, but on the dark cold nights when only the obsessed marathoners and people motivated by resolutions are out there…all there is is crickets).
I will note that I am slightly comforted by the fact that the Manhattan Half-marathon is at capacity for this weekend, but I will be sure to check the actual number of finishers to see the percentage of actual finishers compared to those who signed up.
Have things gotten so bad in New York that people have even given up having resolutions?
