1. Editor's Note

As of next week, existing subscribers to PE Digest.com will gain access to the new PE Update.com website. We're still under construction, so this will just be a sneak peek. I'd love your feedback, so please let me know what you like, don't like and what you'd like to see. After all, this will be your website.

Also next week, those of you who haven't updated their subscription to this newsletter will receive your second-last request. In two weeks, you'll receive your final request, and then, boo hoo, that will be the last time we'll ask - we'll be sending PE Tips of the Week only to readers who are on our new mailing database. I sure hope you'll join us!

2. From the Web

Why save Phys-Ed?

This powerful video was a project for a student's physical education and health seminar. It was produced in response to a school district in New Jersey that was thinking about canceling their physical education programs.

Personally, I wouldn't go so far as to undermine the importance of academic subjects like math, history and English, but the video's other points are bang on. The text is a little hard to read at times, but many of the points in this video are excellent, and it could serve as a model for your own video.

    5. Pick of the Week

    Each week, I'll highlight an article that I think is really useful. The article will be available to non-members of the website for a week, and to members forever!

    This week's pick is: Marathoning is in Our Genes

    Compared to other animals, it might seem like humans are awkward runners. However, humans have been uniquely designed through evolution to be effective runners...over long distances. Adaptations such as the achilles tendon, the Nuchal ligament, large joints, the lack of fur and the ability to sweat have all made us effective long distance runners. This ability allowed our species to survive in our pre-agriculture years. For more information, click the title link.
