FITTEST CITIES

3. Colorado Springs
4. San Francisco
5. Denver
6. Portland, Ore.

"Eighty-five percent of Seattle residents get some exercise every month, and that's a really significant thing," Boulton said. The city's jittery love affair with espresso might fuel some of that activity, he noted: "There's not only a lot of it, it's pretty darn strong."


Hm, I guess we are living in the right area. :-)
