Colorado Springs named fittest city


In the Gazette today, I wrote a story about how Men's Fitness named the Springs "fittest city in America" for 2008. I didn't have much room to talk about the criteria. Here's some of the things they use to judge:

Fitness Centers & Sporting Goods

Nutrition

Sports Participation

Alcohol Consumption

TV Viewing

Overweight/Sedentary

Junk Food

Air Quality

Climate

Geography

Commute

Parks & Open Space

City Rec Facilities

Access to Healthcare

Motivation

Mayor & City Initiatives

State Obesity Initiatives

We might be a town of retired right wingers but we sure have great outdoor options.

Must chap the buns of the editors of the Gazette to see the TOPS program getting kudos.
Nelson sez Ha-ha.

The editorial page editor, perhaps.

Please, let's not confuse the newsroom with the editorial department, which is a separate being.
