Want to loose weight?? VMware offers you multiple options this week :-)

If you are like me, sit a lot behind your computer, but want to have a more healthy week… Join us at VMworld in San Francisco πŸ™‚

Besides today’s fun run, where a whole bunch of VMworld attendees went to run across the Golden Gate Bridge, you will get an insane workout by just visiting VMworld the coming 4 days. The event has gotten so large, with so many people that the amount of miles you will have to walk will be incredible / “great work out” for you πŸ™‚ To accomodate the record breaking amount of attendees this year, VMware is using the entire of the Moscone conference venue and I can tell you from being here now 2 days, that is a large large area to cover. So besides walking away hopefully much smarter at the end of this week, my tummy will be consolidated into a nice musculair bread board… or maybe I should keep dreaming πŸ˜‰
