Link Roundup – Physical Fitness Edition

 Welcome to another Link Round-up edition.   This is the Physical Fitness edition in honor of the bloggers’ weightloss challenge being sponsored by Baker over at Man vs. Debt.

While I’m a little behind on my personal objectives in this area, I’ve made some progress since the start of this event and I’ve enjoyed the team aspect of this competition.  Congratulations and good luck to everyone… especially my teammates on the Alpha team!

So in the spirit of team building, here are some great articles from my teammates… as well as, some favorites from around the web.  I encourage everyone to check them out.

My Favorites – self indulgent, yes, here is my favorite recent article from my own inventory

 One of my personal favorites over the last few weeks is Mayor of the Mall.  I suppose the story behind the article is a lesson is procrastination… the raw content is from the 2008 holiday season and various drafts of this article have been perched for launch for several weeks but I’ve bumped it numerous times for various reasons.  But I loved the podcast that inspired the article and I especially love the name – which was a line from one of the principals in the story.
