Update 4-21-15

We’re in the 6th week the challenge, up to 1.164 hours of logged activity and Canyon Crest decided to keep the lead. Although the lead hasn’t changed since last week, Downtown has certainly stepped up their efforts. The Downtown neighborhood squeezed into second place this week forcing the Arlington neighborhood into 3rd place. Looks like we’ve got some healthy competition going on. You’re doing great!

Update 4-14-15

We are officially in the 5th week of the Start RIGHT Challenge and as you can see, you’ve been VERY busy. Almost 1,000 hours of activity has been logged! I’d also like to note that Canyon Crest is back in the lead. Apparently the Canyon Crest and Arlington neighborhoods are quite competitive. I think it’s time one of the other neighborhoods steps up with some serious hours and shakes things up a bit. Get your neighborhood together for a group bike ride, basketball game, tennis match or even go roller skating/ice skating :-) Get creative with your activities and invite others to join.

having back pain each year. And, chances are if you make your living sitting in a desk, you’ve
experienced a back ache once or twice. But, it turns out some very common health-practice,
like quitting smoking and staying hydrated, can help you avoid some kinds of back pain.
