Thanks for all the congrats on the interview, everyone! It went well and now it’s just a waiting game. More interviews to come and, hopefully, one seriously awesome letter (or phone call, I’ll take either) from my chosen university in the mail soon so that I can sleep at night.
‘Til then, here’s the Fitness News you might have missed last week.
- The Four Seasons Miami is offering “Stay, Run, Eat” package for the Miami Marathon. Yes, please.
- Greatist profiles these Top 60 Health Blogs. No, I’m not on there…yet.
- For the last time, running isn’t going to increase your chances for a heart attack. Jeez.
- According to Gawker, Crossfit is OVER. It’ll be the Zumba of 2012.
- It’s a little late, but here’s a recap of the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston. For the women: Shalane, Desiree and Kara. For the men: Meb, Ryan and Abdi. PR’s were set all over the place, but there are only 3 spots. And here’s how our athletes stack up against the others.
- Katie Couric popped by my favorite Flywheel studio to rock out with my girls, Aleah and Dani this weekend. Cool.
- An interview with the man who wrote a book about the ingredients in a Twinkie.
- New York Sports Club is incorporating light therapy in their classes. Anyone tried this?
- 35.7% of adults and 16.9% of children in the U.S. qualify as obese. Obese, that doesn’t even count the amount who are considered overweight. Oh, but it’s not rising. Yippee. Here’s how some communities are fighting back.
- …but don’t overdo the exercise stuff. Weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise…so, will the Nike Fuel Band help? And who is gonna pay $149 for it?
- Miranda Kerr says Victoria’s Secret helps to promote a healthy body image. Ummm…really?
- I really hope this isn’t true.
- Never been a Galloway Method fan. I’m not alone.
- And here are some statistics to scare the headphones right out of your runner ears.
Did I miss anything? Let me know! In the mean time, this is the first week back at school for me. Last semester as an undergrad/post-bac. I cannot WAIT to start my doctorate program this summer. Bring it!
Now go out and run!
