Good Reads For the Week: 2/9/2013

Posted on by Ben Bruno

Wow, the Northeast is getting hammered by this blizzard!

I thought any storm named “Nemo” couldn’t possibly be that intense (seriously, what a wussy name), but boy was I wrong. I just looked outside and it looks like we’ve already got around two FEET of snow, and it’s still coming down.

So basically I’m snowed it for (at least) the rest of the day.

If you’re in the same boat, or even if you’re not, then this week’s Good Reads will probably be appreciated.

I’ve gotten away from posting videos, but I think I’ll try doing a “Video of the Week” at the start of these posts. So today, it’s sled drags.

I’ve uploaded a few more videos this week as well, which can see on my You Tube page.

Now for the reading. Here are some blog posts you may have missed.

    Ben, love these but bring back your video compilation posts! They were awesome!

  • Jake

    Great compilation, Ben. I loved Jon’s post about having to be ripped to be a personal trainer. It should really open some eyes and inform people that appearance does not equal knowledge and there are things we don’t know, so we shouldn’t judge.

    Also, good luck with your speaking event! Sounds exciting.

    Nice links Ben, but the Chris Anderson link about box jumps is broken, it points to Tony Gentilcore’s blog.
