Transit Users More Fit

A new study ... suggests taking public transit may help you keep fit.

..."The idea of needing to go to the gym to get your daily dose of exercise is a misperception," ... "These short walks throughout our day are historically how we have gotten our activity. Unfortunately, we've engineered this activity out of our daily lives."

Its funny when I tell co-workers I walk 6 blocks to catch the bus, they look at me like I have a third eye and I'm trek'n across Africa.
Heaven forbid I walk a few blocks after sitting at a desk all day.

Next thing you know the fitness industry will lobby against public transport....

You feel so much better, too.

Does anyone here remember the Reading Is FUNdamental program that encouraged kids to read regularly? Maybe we need a Walking Is FUNdamental program.
