in the top 10

I spotted today that this blog had made Outside magazine's list of:

The best sites for health advice and commentary, so you can get online and go outside

Here is the full list:

Within the last year, The New York Times, The New York Observer, and Wired all pondered whether Facebook and Twitter have killed blogging. Phooey. Health and fitness blogs are better than ever—and these 10 provide analysis and voice that status updates and 140 character tweets can’t touch. These are the fitness blogs we find ourselves checking every day.

10. Conditioning Research
9. RunBlogger
8. Core Performance
6. NPR Shots
5. Science Daily Fitness News
4. Mobility WOD
3. Wall Street Journal Health Blog
2. Sweat Science
1. The New York Times Well Blog

I can't believe that this blog made that list!  Next to the quality of the material in some of those other blogs my offerings are very weak.  All I've ever claimed to be doing is recording various bits and pieces that I find interesting and which I hope to build into my own thinking and trainging.  It is humbling to find that these records are helping other people.

I do not deserve to be up there with Sweat Science Kelly Starret!  


Here is what they say about this blog:

Highcock, a Scottish fitness fan, uncovers interesting tidbits of info and videos related to strength training, running, nutrition, parkour—you name it, he’s posted something about it. Highcock’s blog is more like a content aggregation service than a personal platform. He has a decidedly Paleo bent, frequently posting short tidbits of info about strength training, stretching, and barefoot running.
Och well, I will just keep on doing what I do!

Chris, congratulations! For me, other fitness blogs come and go, but I've had yours bookmarked since I first found it. Keep up the good work!

Congratulations, Chris! Some well deserved attention.

Chris said...

Thanks Paul. Coming from you that is a huge compliment! Your own work has transformed the dietary approach of so many of us in the last year or so.

Kind regards
