The First Day I Stood...

A few months ago, we aired a segment with this super smart guy who basically said that sitting down all day is killing us...literally. I don't want to die. So I decided to try standing at work, using this incredibly snazzy standing workstation I borrowed from a company called Ergotron.

It's only day one...and to be fair, it took Taylor Quimby quite a while to put this thing together.

But so far, I don't feel death creeping up on me...at least not yet.

I'll be reporting on the way it feels to work while standing up in a series of blogs about The Summer I Stood. And in a few weeks, I'll catch up with Virginia on the air about whether standing all day is all it's cracked up to be.

So, there's that.
