We’re #5 this time. According to Forbes we are the 5th most sedentary city in the United States. The results were released yesterday on the magazine’s website, where they also explained just how they arrived at their findings as well as how they determined that some cities were not necessarily as healthy as they thought.

We did get high marks for physical activity. Only a little more than ¼ of the folks that they spoke with said that they did not exercise. But we still watch 39 hours of TV a week…

All the more reason why folks need to head out tonight to celebrate with the Friends of Red Mountain Park over at B&A Warehouse. Check out the listing on the Timetable calendar so you can get a taste of what you’ll hear this evening.

BTW – you can see the rest of the top 20 list in slideshow format over on their site.
