The American College of Sports Medicine says our nation’s capital is the fittest city in America. While Washington D.C. grabbed the top spot, my city, Portland, Oregon, ranked seventh.  Webmd lists the 45 cities: http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/news/20090526/which-city-is-americas-fittest  Seattle, the city where I was born, was judged sixth fittest. Not bad for two cities with plenty of outdoor activities. Portland has several attractive walking trails. Forest Park and Tryon Creek State Park provide some of the most beautiful walks. In Seattle, a stroll around Green Lake is a great way to escape the urban lifestyle. If your city did not appear on this list, don’t fret.  Get fit, and wait until the next listing!
