Well, friends, it’s been 10 months since we posted the Philly Fitness Bucket List, our handpicked compendium of the 25 things every local fitness enthusiast needs to do at least once. So it’s time for a status check: How many items have you managed to check off? (You can go ahead and tell us in the comments.)

While we’re certainly smitten with all 25 to-dos, we’re particularly jazzed today about #17, the Schuylkill River Sojourn. See, the just-posted video, below — part of WHYY’s Keystone Crossroads series on urban waterfronts — documents the seven-day, 112-mile kayaking journey from Schuylkill Haven to Boathouse Row in a speedy three-minute reel. And the kayak-mounted camera aaallllmost makes you feel like you were there. 

This year’s Sojourn has already wrapped — it took place back in June — but you should be sure to add it to your calendar for next year. Meantime, get cracking on the rest of that bucket list already.
