Dwayne Johnson, The Rock, at Gold's Gym - Wilmington, North Carolina

It was the start of another day before work at the gym. Upon getting ready to leave I heard someone come into the locker room. I was packing all my stuff into my bag and looked up and saw Dwayne Johnson standing there in front of me. I introduced myself and he shook my hand and said it was nice meeting me. That dude is huge!! He was one of three people that inspired me to lose 50 pounds two years earlier and get into shape. It was surreal to see one of my motivational heroes standing in front of me. Anyway, I had heard later that he was in town filming the part two of Journey to the Center of the Earth. I have to say he is the same "Class Act" in person as he is on television. A few days later a buddy of mine from work was leaving the gym and ran into him in the gym parking lot. I was hoping to run into him again to get a photo with him, but it was not to be. Wilmington is the Hollywood of the east...so I'm sure I will run into him again one day. As for my other two inspirational heroes.......I'll have to wait till Gerard Butler or Ryan Reynolds come to town for a chance meeting. Maybe one day.
