I’ve mentioned that Portland’s a pretty fit, healthy city. Unfortunately, it looks like it is not caused by something in the water or some magic Portland pixie dust.
People actually get out and do stuff. And not just walk across the street and get some blue cheese steak fries at Leona’s kind of stuff. They ride bikes and run and all kinds of activities that are completely alien to me, a guy who mostly reads books, watches movies, plays video games and spends hours and hours on a computer at both work and home.
So it’s time to change. I’m going to include some discussion of losing weight here to keep me honest, from the standpoint of the tools and technology that’s out there to keep a geek like me interested in fitness. We all have our own motivation — mine’s going to be a chance to buy new gadgets.
