Off Yer Butt

For years, I’ve spent most of my time standing, walking, etc. I often stand even when goofing around on a computer. I’m just not good at sitting for prolonged periods of time, and it appears that’s a good thing:

A large review recently published in The Journal of the National Cancer Institute confirms what we’ve been hearing for years: Sitting can be fatal.

Evidently, you can’t undo the effects of prolonged butt-time even with exercise. Sitting is the new smoking – even for runners.
