Fit For Life

Baltimore has been deemed the fittest city in America.

I thought it was a joke, too.

Our Mayor seems pretty fit. Have you ever seen him in a sleeveless shirt?? H-O-T.

But does he own stock in Starbucks or what:
"You see some neighborhoods starting to grow again, and attracting younger people. With those younger people coming, there's a number of gyms now," O'Malley said. "In every growing neighborhood, you look for two leading signs -- one is a gym and the other is a Starbucks."

I know. He's been pushing for more Starbucks for two years now. *grrrr* and *sigh* what are you going to do? What I consider a plus for the city, a lack of starbucks, those that can draw a higher tax base consider a minus.

men's health lists san francisco, ca as #1 with self proclaiming nassau-suffolk counties, ny at the top spot.

must be a lot of poeple wanting to feel better about how fat they're getting. :)

The mayor's statement sounds like a call to arms for independent businesses in the city. Start the PR machine!!!

The mayor wants a city of caffeinated work out freaks.

You know, everyone jokes, but really, when I sat down and thought about it, about 98% of everyone I know in Baltimore either belongs to a gym, rides a bike, does yoga, bellydances or runs from the cops.

Even Maggie is in Rollergirls! They practice three times a week!

Drinking is pretty physically strenuous, too.

"Drinking is pretty physically strenuous, too."

At least the way we do it.

And for every Starbucks you find 100 people making a puckering face while drinking that horrid brown swill water.
