    Lots of good reads today, courtesy of http://www.crossfitnyc.org/ — they always link some interesting fitness articles:
    1. Peer reviewed article in an exercise science journal concludes that barefoot running *may* be less injury prone than running with shoes:
    http://www.sportsci.org/jour/0103/mw.htm
    the reviewers comment is pretty interesting and somewhat critical. My conclusion: no one really knows.
    2. As we’ve discussed on this blog a couple times before, Ibuprofen is generally counterproductive for working out and getting fitter:
    http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/01/phys-ed-does-ibuprofen-help-or-hurt-during-exercise/
    more results confirming/explaining this, and some pretty stunning statistics from the Western States 100 (a 100 mile running ultramarathon) and Ironman Brazil about how widespread the abuse is by ultra endurance athletes.
    3. Coming to a supermarket near you: a new industry backed food labeling program called “Smart Choices”
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/05/business/05smart.html?_r=1
    Read the explanation of how “Froot Loops” gets a smart-choice green checkmark even though it is 41% sugar by weight.

    2nd BS rep I learned to bail the weight and that it wasn’t that scary to do. That was valuable, thanks Amber. Now that it happened, I hope I won’t be as scared of BS for future efforts.
    Cool Margaret. Your Vibrams also match your outfit.
    not my day for SP. Left arm wouldn’t budge at a certain point, possible imbalanced more than half the weight

    I thought the Fruit Loops was a joke. I wonder if they think its a “smart choice” because Fruit is in the title of the product.

    They have that “marking” on items in the vending machines here! I think it’s a joke.
