Warren Moon played for the Oilers from the year I was born until 1993. The Cowboys won a Super Bowl in 1993 and 1995. I had a lot to cheer for as a little girl growing up in Texas, watching Monday Night Football with my family gathered around the TV while we eat dinner. Times [...]

I withdrew from the Fittest Games. My back/SI joint stopped hurting. I did all the right things (treatment, standing, icing, yoga), but I also worked through the conflict.

Lately I’ve been stealing CrossFit Austin workouts … it’s not exactly stealing, but you know what I mean. Anyway, last night I performed this one, in MY gym crowded by high school boys (apparently their gym is shut down for winter break) who were stealing the squat rack to perform squats far too heavy for [...]

Yum Yum Pecan Brittle (you know I’d use palm sugar …) For workouts? I’ve been skiing my [...]
It is still sad. I need someone in Aspen to fix it! Where’s my Austin Sports Therapy Dr. Kyler in this ski town? I need ART, myofascial release, sports massage … somethin’!
My totally badass new-to-me Land Rover Discovery II Kalahari Edition. The guy who sold it to me warned me about 7,000 times (k, probably just 15) that it was a “masculine” car. It’s very “manly,” he said in a concerned tone, thinking of the attention his son got in it and probably also the sic [...]
