Column on Examiner.com

Until I can figure out a better "work around" to get a simple URL for my San Jose Fitness column on Examiner.com, I'm just posting a link here.

In case you are curious, the actual URL is http://www.examiner.com/x-5202-San-Jose-Fitness-Examiner

Yeh, I know it's crazy to have to post it here to get you there. But it's the only way I can tell people to find the column (well...you can go to www.examiner.com and type San Jose Fitness in the search bar).

Sorry for the hassle folks. But if you subscribe to the column -- free by RSS or email (there's a tab for that on my examiner page, next to the tab that says "My Bio") -- you can save yourself the hassle of coming here first.

Thanks. Amy Rabinovitz, San Jose Fitness Examiner
