GOTR Atlanta’s Fun Friday Health Links (Dec. 18)

December 18, 2009

This post will be relatively short because your resident Why We Run blogger is off to Kruger Park for the weekend! In fact, the next couple of weeks may be slow on the blog. I’m at the tail end of my trip to South Africa, and that means vacation! With very limited Internet access. I’ll do my best to keep it up. I have found some more great health blogs to share with you today, and there are some fun holiday events going on in and around Atlanta this weekend. So enjoy and have a great weekend!

Must-Read Health Blogs

Healthy Tipping Point is authored by Operation Beautiful mastermind Caitlin. This blog documents Caitlin’s food and fitness habits as well as her journey toward completing her Operation Beautiful book. We could all learn a lot from Caitlin!
